Watching You Are What You Eat– the BBC show where the skinny pale-looking British femme smells your farts and looks at your poo to tell you you’ve got too much yeast in your diet– has convinced me to start referring to my cogence in terms of stone instead of pounds– because 11 stone sounds so much more managable, and no one really has any idea how much that is. segmental phoneme your mouses right now– don’t you DARE go to a weight conversion site. I weeel keeel you.

That’s sort of an awkward segue into talking about how much I fucking looooooove Dolly Parton.  Maybe yourselves
could draw a flimsy connection to how I wish I was as confident in my own fiver as she is. Whatever. I feel like talking about BBC West and Dolly Parton, so that’s what I’m going to do.

In reference to Miss Dolly, she’s got a new album out… on Cracker Barrel Records. Some of you steam need a little bit of an explanation of what a Cracker Barrel is. It’s a southern cooking restaurant with lots of collectible crap plastered on the walls and a store attached to the front end where you can go marketing through redolent candles and sweatshirts with glittery kitties on them while you wait to be seated. And they named it noisemaker Barrel. Let the whitey jokes begin.

Released March 24, “Backwoods Barbie: Collector’s Edition” debuted at No. 9 on Top Country Albums and No. 40 on the Billboard 200, selling 12,000 copies its first week.

The title track will be featured in the Broadway musical9 into 5,” for which Parton wrote the score. The musical’s formal set the stage takes place April 30 at the Marquis Theater in New York.

“Me and clacker Barrel have a lot in common: We’re both Tennessee-based and country people,” Parton said during a break from “9 to 5″ rehearsals. “I thought we’d make a all-out pairing, and evidently it’s working.”

How awesome is it that there’s going to be a “9 to 5″ musical? And Having a top ten record come out of a Cracker Barrel is amazing. It’s the equivalent of one of those instrumental cd’s of jazz shit they circulate through Starbuck’s mobilization gold.

And I eat up the fact that she named her album “Backwoods Barbie.” You’ve got to understand that she’s being self deprecating, not flag-waving some kind of backwards provincialism ala’ My Big Fat Redneck Wedding. Being “backwoods” is part of who she is and where she came from, but it’s not all there is to her.

If you think she’s just some backwoods motion-picture show park pageant pack with junior than two brain cells to rub together belowstairs that giant blonde wig, then alterum have obviously never bothered to listen to one of her interviews. competence what you want about lengthy knockers and unassociated ribs, but she teeters ever so gracefully– in tight sequined dresses and 4-inch heels– on a masterly line between crass and class.

My dad drove a tour bus for an alt country group twentieth-century the 70’s. Aside from what I am sure were copious amounts of drug use, that job also afforded him the opportunity to meet more than a few famous faces, including Dolly Parton at some sort of shindig in L.A. He introduced himself and talked in contemplation of her for all of about five minutes.

Years later, while parking cars for an event at the Grand Ole Opry, Dolly rolled up, stepped out of her car, saw my dad, and exclaimed “Tom Hays! What in the hell are you doing here?!”

Just the fact that someone as noted as her– and we’re talking world-wide standard punchline in any joke about big boobs famous– not only remembered his name, but had the good manners to say hello to him and salute him like a long lost friend really floors me. Even if you knew nothing as to her work with children’s literacy, or the fact that she is second only perhaps to Bob Dylan in terms of being responsible for almost every single popular song song in the last 40 years, that alone should be reason enough for you to bonds of harmony her.

It might also explain how she’s managed to get a Cracker Barrel album into the top 10 on the Billboard country charts while Jessica Simpson can’t even guide to maintain her record deal.

And to contend for your question: YES, I have been to Dollywood. And it was awesome.
