Dolly Reflects on Her Music Career Through the Years

In a 2019 interview with Good Morning America, Dolly Parton opens up about her music career over the years. “It’s just a country Cinderella story, really,” Parton explains. She also states that she used to wonder what her life might be like when she was older and when she looked back on her life. 

“It feels good that I have been able to see so many dreams come true,” Dolly reveals. Also during the interview, Parton admits that she doesn’t actually know how many songs she has written over the years. “When people say ‘How many?’ I say, ‘I don’t know. I don’t count them. I’ve written thousands of songs.”

Dolly also recalls when she was younger and how everything to her was music. “I still write [songs]. I still have to have my yellow legal pads and my cassette player. And I have to order them off eBay.”

Dolly also admits that she has struggled with depression. “I don’t think people can live in this world without going through times like that,” Parton states. “People always look at me, they always say, ‘Oh, you just seem to be so happy.’ I said, ‘That’s the Botox.”

Parton also describes herself as a very sensitive person and feels everything to the core. “I could totally relate to how people do get on drugs or alcohol. How people do commit suicide. Because when you’re a tender, loving, caring, sensitive person, you feel like you can only stand so much heartache and sorrow.”
