Of Course Dolly Parton is Writing Her Life Story as A Musical

I said “of course” like that because this is completely magical news, and it’s only to be expected after how completely magical this whole month has been. Have you guys been feeling it? Think about it: this month we’ve gotten a slew of nudie pics from some ridiculously gorgeous women (and Lindsay Lohan!), we gotten into the holiday spirit, thanks to Courtney Stodden, and also, I’m getting married, you guys! I would say that he liked it, so he put a ring on it, but it’s not 2008 and I’m not That Girl. But it’s been such a good month, hasn’t it?

But this isn’t about me right now. This is about the beautiful Dolly Parton and her plans to pen an autobiographical musical for Broadway. She actually says that she’s in the process of writing the show right now, but that she probably won’t be acting in it when it hits Broadway. However, she did say that she’d “find a way to introduce it somehow, maybe the older me.” You just can’t keep Dolly Parton off a stage, you know.

For those of you lucky enough to have experienced the glory of Dollywood, this sounds a lot like Heartsong, doesn’t it? I wonder if you’ll get splashed with water or if leaves will fall as it turns autumn in the Great Smoky Mountains? My fingers are definitely crossed.
