The Front Porch page here at DollyParton.com is a place where you will find the stories that are a part of the fabric of one little girl’s big dreams, woven into the legacy that is Dolly Parton.

Some might have seen just a beautiful face—- some, a beautiful body—- some, a beautiful voice. However, very few saw that beautiful soul that most all of us see now ❤️❤️
My boyfriend dad still has it..
Happy October Gorgeous Lady! You're such a joy!💕💯✔👑
I’m happy to have one. Dolly is and has always been a class act‼️ Graced the cover without posing nude. 😘
I remember you telling Johnny Carson that they said, "If I didn't like the picture, they could touch it up with an airbrush. I think they used a blow-torch on this one!" That was so funny!!! 🙂 G!
Omg LOOOVE YOU!
I had the pleasure of being your chauffeur in Melbourne many years ago and will never forget being back stage listening to you and watching the big screen this was and always will be a highlight in my life Dolly.
I love you so much! You and Kenny Rogers were one of my first concerts. I wore gaucho pants and knee high boots.
You would make a great governor!!!
Good Lawd! Dolly Parton you are the finest woman I ever saw in my 45 years. During my life, you have the measuring stick for a beautiful woman!
Best Little Whorehouse in Texas is still a favorite of mine!
It’s OK to be you! Look at all you have done for others! You are loved and respected around the world. Thank you for sharing your life with us! You have inspired many, probably more than you know. Lots of Love from me and my dogs Dolly! All the best to you Sweet Lady! ❤️
Beautiful both inside and out. She has a heart of gold and is extremely generous.❤️
What a beautiful lady. The first word i could spell was D.I.V.O.R.C.E and my 1st born was named Joseph !!
Happy October Dolly you are so beautiful. We received our book today from the Dolly Library
I still have my issue of this! My husband bought me a year's subscription to Playboy as a joke and I later sold all of them except this one for $12 an issue at a yard sale. Two guys kept bidding each other up. Lol!
I can't even fathom how hot Jolene was to ever be a threat to you.
I just wanted to know how her preacher Grandfather throught about it and her mom unless they were passed away when this was taken don't get me wrong I love Dolly love her laugh the most
That magazine really did have great articles...
The most beautiful, talented, intelligent bunny to ever grace the cover ❤
Read all these comments. Read all this support.
I have always been a fan of Dolly but iam floored to see this.
This "lil nas" only months ago released a music video having sex with someone dressed as the devil. He was riding him! He endorsed a shoe line (Nike) in support of death and support of satan. A shoe that contains actual human blood literally titled 'satan shoes'. It is staggering to me to see someone of your stature an honor drop to this level.
With all do respect Dolly girl you have deeply unsettled your southern fan base with such support of what this musician stands for.
For someone so silent on political issues you sure dont hold the tongue when it comes to support for others pushing an obvious agenda. Its becoming quit clear why you dont speak about certain things for you know your fan base will faulter. It is unnerving to see they got to you too.
This comment will make waves im sure. However i want you to know this.. becareful of the ones you push an promote. Choose your words wisely my dear, for they may be few in popularity to agree with such side switching. Unbelievable is an understatement.
Both class acts! ❤️❤️
Right because someone that gives satan a lap dance is someone that you would want to cover your song? Losing fans dolly.
Really Dolly? I have lost respect for you if you can support someone like him.
All these comments are exactly the reason that Dolly is a representative of true southern hospitality and y'all ain't lol.
I dont think he did anything for this song. He really just messed it up. Sorry.👎🏼
Dolly I couldn't Love you anymore❣ What an Amazing Person you are❣
Oh my!! What a slap in the face!!
I admire that Dolly cheers everyone on but I refuse to listen, watch or condone anything to do with him.
SRSLY. Lil Nas X the devil worshipper? The Dude with the tennies and a drop of human blood in them? I. Just.Can’t. Believe.that.this. Is.a.honor . ……..
I love Dolly but a hard pass on her support for an artist who publicly promotes Satanism
This version isn’t my cup of tea, but I love that you praise all the various renditions of your songs. Dolly you are 100% a class act. ❤️
The song was good but I didn’t like when he dressed up as satan.
Are you freaking kidding me?!! Considering what this clown stands for and promotes, you are “honored and flattered”?!! Dolly, come on!! 🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
This song has been destroyed ever since Miley Cyrus touched it! It just keeps getting worse and worse!!!
I rarely like anyone else’s remake of this song but this one was actually quite nice! He’s got a beautiful voice!
Flee from me satan
None of y'all announcing your exit are even fans anyway as you clearly don't know Dolly is a gay icon and she's proud of it 💅
I love how she appreciates everyone’s talents, such a classy lady. But, I must say that nobody comes close to Dolly, especially with Jolene!
Wellll your version is definitely better 😊
Love you Dolly!!!!
Nobody sings it better than Dolly though it's my fave song
Sad she’s gotta step in to attempt to help him after his Satanic reveal
Dolly Parton noooo!!!!
Make sure you’re familiar with who you are speaking so highly of. 😭😭😭
The thing that makes Dolly so wonderful is that she loves without judgement. We could all learn a little something from her.
Oct 14, 2013. It was my 39th bday. My husband and I rode all the roller coasters, ate a huge slice of pizza, loved seeing all the decorations!! Just the smell of the kettle corn in the air was amazing!! I had the best time of my life!! I will never forget it!! Best memory ever🧡
It's beautiful this time of year, but it really always is. It's the nicest theme park I've ever seen!
All the wonderful shows, displays of fall decorations and the huge pumpkins. The smell of the cinnamon bread, and the parade with Dolly. I LOVE Dollywood!!!🙂❤🙂
I’ve always wanted to go to Dollywood!!! My first 45 record was Jolene!
My wife and I first visit a few weeks ago and we're blown away by the pumpkin displays. Very fun.
My bachelorette party

Have been there during Fall and its beautiful .The drive to the park was always great when we lived up in Tennessee.through.the Smokey mountains park.
Dolly in concert at DollyWood’s Harvest Fest 2004! These were some of my favorite shows.
My favorite place ever. I was in charge of our yearly company picnic. Of course I chose Dollywood for this yearly event. We always went in September which is my youngest daughter's birthday month.. Just so happened we were gonna be there on her 16th birthday. I mentioned that to the lady I always dealt at Dollywood. They made my daughter's 16th birthday very special and even baked her a cake. All the employees that were helping with our food came out singing Happy Birthday and presented her with the cake. They always go the extra mile to make sure everything is great. My daughter still talks about it and she's 29 years old now.❤
Dolly is so beautiful and I just love her bubbly personality. So talented and helps less fortunate then herself. She is truly a Angel on earth.
Well I remember going to Dollywood with my grandma and grand daddy when I was little during the fall they loved dolly!
I have never been to Dollywood and I haven’t been on a vacation in 10 years. I love her music, her videos and her Christmas movies. Dolly’s song - Nickles and Dimes is my favourite. I would love to get a CD or a DVD signed by Dolly.
I would love to go back to Dollywood, I've been several times and always enjoyed it.
I loved the Luminights, the music, food, Dolly’s Rainbow Museum, My People Show, the rides, the huge cornucopia, just everything!
Elementary school field trip circa 1987. (Approx.) First trip ever and it is as so much fun. I got my Papaw a Dollywood coffee cup and he used it all the time until he passed away in 2011. I sure wish I had that coffee cup now.... Great memory. Thanks for asking! 💗🎶
I live in Florida now and I miss going to Dollywood so much. I grew up going there and it's amazing in Autumn and at Christmas.
Being at the little chapel listening to Billy Hodges sing. It was like the Spirit just filled the sanctuary with His presence... Peace, praise, and a sweet, sweet spirit. Been to Dollywood many times over the years.... That's my sweetest memory.
I've never been to the Harvest Festival would love to use my fall break from work to go! I bet the fall is beautiful!
She is so beautiful! How her husband stays away from her I'll never understand. The light she shines makes everyones else's shine a little brighter. Her energy is soul food.
I liked the tree made out of hand carved pumpkins and walking through all the Halloween exhibits at night (minus the large crowds).
I have been there since I was kid. It was called Silver Dollar Junction, Gold Rush Junction, and now Dollywood. I love that place!
A great time in 2020. We Love Dolly.
I’ve been going to Dollywood since before it was Dollywood 😁. Absolutely love the Harvest Festival- my favorite memory was last year with my mom because we just walked around, enjoyed the decorations, and ate cinnamon bread. 🧡 Thanks for giving my family a special place to make so many happy memories! 🎃
