So Dolly was one of the hosts of a show I did called 50 Years of Country Music. She was also one of the performers for President Jimmy Carter at a show I did at Ford’s Theatre. I remember her being the most real person. She never threw a star fit of any kind. She was not pretentious in any way, and I remember walking out during the show to the back alley behind Ford’s Theatre, and there’s Dolly drinking beer and smoking cigarettes with the crew. I like her story of coming up from poverty to become a country music queen.
