Dolly Parton

Iconic singer, songwriter, actress, philanthropist and entrepreneur Dolly Parton does it all – the only thing she has to sacrifice is sleep! On the heels of a world tour promoting her new album, Blue Smoke, the self-proclaimed early bird is up before the sunrise and makes time to dream, cook, spend time with her family and live the country woman lifestyle.

Dolly is featured in the August/September issue of Country Woman, which is on stands July 8th.

Her Southern cooking and family recipes: “I’m the one they’ll always ask to bring the chicken and dumplings. I make it like my mama and my grandmas and my aunts. I definitely still cook like a country woman.”

Where she gets inspiration from her songs: “My songs are the door to every dream I’ve had and every success I’ve ever achieved.”

On playing the guitar at age seven and what she used as a fake microphone: “I used to put a tin can on a tobacco stick. And those were not chickens out there in the yard, they were my audience.”

What she would have done if she didn’t pursue her passion: “If it hadn’t been for music, I’d have been a beautician. Or maybe I’d have been a missionary; but where would I get my hair done?”

How Dollywood got started: “I just love [the mountain range] the Smokies. I bought the old home place years ago and fixed it up as a retreat.”

Country Woman’s June/July issue spotlights another side of the two-time Olympian, deemed the “most famous softball player in history” by TIME Magazine. A Los Angeles native, Finch gave up her glove and moved to Sulphur, Louisiana—her husband and former Major League Baseball player Casey Daigle’s hometown—to raise children Ace, 7, Diesel, 2, and Paisley, 5 months. Now she dishes with Country Woman about why she couldn’t be happier with her rural home.

“My family is extremely important to me, and while my heart will always be on the field with softball, living in the country has allowed me to pursue my other loves,” said Finch. “I enjoy the slow pace, privacy and opportunity to get in touch with nature. It’s a great place to raise the kids. In summer, we’re outside from practically the time we wake up to the time we go to sleep.”
