Tennessee in my heart

I am from Canada, born raised and live my country, I am a proud Canadian. But I have Tennessee in my heart, Sevierville is our second home. We own 2 cabins in Pigeon Forge and have gone to Tennessee for years as a family. Dolly has always been someone to look up to, to aspire to and to live by. This podcast was brilliant. The stories, songs, descriptions of the county. You all are magical on the podcasts. I live how you weened in and out of Dolly and her world and how we all do as humans.

OK. Here I am, a non Dolly lover...... until I stumbled upon your podcast and lo. I am singing Islands in the Stream for the last week. You turned me.

Dollygasm!

Phenomenal research and documenting about an extraordinary human being. Dolly Parton is such a rich and out-of-this-world subject, the entire 9 episodes could almost seem fictional, but I believe it all. Thank you for producing such an AMAZING podcast!
