If permitted, the statue could be paid for by the “Dolly Parton fund,” which would come with presents, grants and different donations. The public would have a say within the statue’s design, too, in keeping with Windle’s invoice. Source has reached out to Windle for remark and is ready to listen to again.
A sculpture of Parton could be a decidedly much less controversial addition to the Tennessee State Capitol, which housed Confederate monuments.
Parton hasn’t publicly commented on the proposal. Source has reached out to her representatives and is ready to listen to again.
But to really feel Parton’s love for her dwelling state, one solely has to take heed to her 1973 traditional about her rural upbringing, “My Tennessee Mountain Home.”
“In my Tennessee mountain home
Life is as peaceful as a baby’s sigh
In my Tennessee mountain home
Crickets sing in the fields nearby.”
