Dolly Parton Fan Posts Side-by-Side Video of Cowboys Halftime Show and 1977 Performance

Following Dolly Parton’s epic halftime show performance on Thanksgiving, a fan of the country music legend posted a side-by-side video of the show and a 1977 performance. 

“Dolly in 1977 vs. Dolly last night in Arlington, TX, 46 years later,” Parton’s fan declared with a heart emoji. They also used the hashtag #NationalTreasure 

Other Parton fans quickly responded to the post. “Dolly is a wonderful singer, songwriter, actress, and humanitarian. She always looks great. National Treasure, indeed!” one fan declared. Another fan addressed the critics by declaring, “I am getting so many hateful replies about her. Dolly may not approve of my language but they can all go f— themselves.”

As previously reported, Dolly Parton took to the halftime stage of the Dallas Cowboys-Washington Commanders game and performed her iconic tracks Jolene and 9 to 5 while dressed in a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader uniform. She also performed her rendition of Queen’s We Are The Champions and We Will Rock You.
Fans were not only stunned by the performance but also by how the 77-year-old singing icon looked.

Dolly Parton Opens Up About Her New Rock Album ‘Rockstar’

While promoting her first-ever rock album Rockstar Dolly Parton opened up to Billboard about making the new record and what it meant to her. 

“I’m beginning to feel a little rock’n’roll-y,” Parton said. When asked if she was planning to switch genres because of the record, she had some thoughts. “But I’ll always be a country girl.  Rockstar was kind of a tongue-in-cheek title. I thought, ‘Here I am, a rock star at my age.’”

Dolly Parton noted that while she’s done covers of classic songs in a bluegrass country version, she’s never done a “full-blown” rock ’n’ roll album. “ It was a challenge, but it was a great joy. I really got into it, and I was surprised that I was able to sing it.”

As she spoke about her approach to Rockstar,  Parton stated that there was a lot of passion and power behind the record. “I’ve always had a good range and fairly good pitch, so I knew that my voice would open up to it. I thought, ‘Well, if I screw this up, I’ve screwed up big time because I’ve got to do it good.’”

In regards to the most fun she had while working on the record, Parton added it all had to do with Stevie Nicks. “Stevie Nicks stayed four days because she got a little throat thing going on, she was kind of hoarse, and she said, ‘This has got to be good. I’m not screwing up your record.’
