When Was the Last Time Dolly Parton Was Starstruck? (Spoiler Alert: It Was at the 2017 Emmy Awards!)
The Queen of Country also recalls her biggest fashion disaster
Dolly Parton may be a megastar, but even the Queen of Country can’t help but be starstruck in the presence of some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
The 71-year-old singer and actress stopped by PEOPLE Now recently, where she played “One Last Thing” and opened up about her time at the 2017 Emmy Awards.
“The last time I was starstruck, I guess, was at the Emmys because every star in the world was there and I was taking pictures with everybody,” she says.
“We had parties and things the night before and the night before, and the night before that and the night of. So I saw so many stars that I almost went blind.”
The “Jolene” singer also reveals her last major fashion disaster: when her dress ripped at the 1978 Country Music Association Awards.
“The biggest disaster I had was the time at the CMA Awards when my whole dress popped right up through the middle just about the time I was going up for an award,” she recalls.
“I had to borrow a coat or somebody’s shawl to hold over me.”
