A few weeks ago, Tennesseean legislatures created a bill to erect a statue of Dolly Parton on their capitol grounds. Today, the beloved singer responded to the bill.

I want to thank the Tennessee legislature for their consideration of a bill to erect a statue of me on the Capitol grounds. I am honored and humbled by their intention but I have asked the leaders of the state legislature to remove the bill from any and all consideration.

Given all that is going on in the world, I don’t think putting me on a pedestal is appropriate at this time. I hope, though, that somewhere down the road several years from now or perhaps after I’m gone if you still feel I deserve it, then I’m certain I will stand proud in our great State Capitol as a grateful Tennessean.

In the meantime, I’ll continue to try to do good work to make this great state proud.

That is why she deserves the statue. How many people would be asking them to rush through the bill? Not Miss Dolly, she is telling them to wait. We need more people like her, and several statues in her honor.
