Dolly Parton Accepts the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

There have been many, and I do mean many, celebrities who have accepted the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge that has been going viral over the last several weeks.  We gave up trying to post all of the videos but this is one we didn’t want to pass up!

Dolly Parton, who’s usually flooding stadiums with fans around the world, cools off her Summer by taking a dive into the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.  Dolly was challenged by several people including famous duet partner, Kenny Rogers.  His doubted dare sparked her to accept and prove how nothing stands in her way for a good cause.

“Kenny said you’ll never do it with your false hair, your false eyelashes, and your false nails,” responds Dolly.  “Kenny, you’d be surprised at what all I do with my falses; for a good cause and a good laugh.”

Dolly drowns down the wigs, nails and lashes with a polar plunge to raise awareness for ALS at her Nashville home while resting after her Blue Smoke World Tour.

Although, I didn’t challenge anyone, I do challenge everybody to make a generous donation like I did!” adds Parton.

Nobody does it like Dolly!    For more information on Dolly Parton please visit:

Dolly Parton earns, yet, another sales award as her 42nd studio album, Blue Smoke – The Best Of, has been certified Gold by the BPI and remains #3 on the official UK chart in its sixth week of release.

“Dolly could not be any happier,” says Dolly’s manager Danny Nozell, CEO CTK Management.  “She has worked very hard over the past several years to create the momentum that we have going.  Everyone at Dolly Records and Sony Music has done an outstanding job with making Dolly’s new music available and the sales prove it.”

Blue Smoke – The Best Of, includes her latest studio album Blue Smoke featuring “Home”, “Blue Smoke” and new duet with long- time collaborator and friend Kenny Rogers and even a Bon Jovi cover!  Alongside her greatest hits on disc 2 featuring the classics such as “Jolene”, “9 to 5″, “Islands in the Stream”, “Little Sparrow”, “Here You Come Again” and “I Will Always Love You” plus many more.

Blue Smoke – The Best Of is officially Gold in the UK, which is a massive achievement for Dolly Parton and the team,” says Faye Donaldson, Sr. Marketing Manager/Sony Music.  “The response to Dolly after her Glastonbury performance has been amazing and having new music available at the same time has created a reaction that I’ve never seen before.  It’s been just perfect.”

In addition, Dolly’s previous studio album Better Day, which was released in 2011, has been certified Silver.

Dolly the Dog Goes Home

Dolly Parton won’t have a four-legged friend traveling with her after all. The white dog left behind at Glastonbury and Dolly Parton’s namesake has returned home to it’s rightful owners, even though Dolly Parton had agreed to give her a new one if they weren’t found. She tells, Rolling Stone Country it may be for the best since the dog’s advanced age may have prevented her from traveling.

“We got a call that the true owners did come forward,” Parton explained. “They had reported the dog missing but there was a language barrier. I think they were from another country. They got the dog back, everybody feels good about it. The Happy Landings shelter has a happy ending now.”

I was gonna rename her ‘Glassie’ because of Glastonbury… I was gonna say, ‘Glassie come home,’” the singer quipped, in reference to Lassie Come Home, the classic film about another lovable canine. “I would’ve called her ‘Glassie Doggie Parton.’”

Dolly was the big draw at the festival, and now she’s headed to Switzerland.

Parton sent a video message saying she was “very honoured and flattered” that the dog had been named after her.

The 68-year-old said: “I had my manager call the Happy Landings animal shelter to make sure the dog is being treated and cared for properly.
