Tennessee Takes Steps To Honor Dolly Parton With A Statue

The Tennessean reports that Dolly Parton may soon be recognized with a statue in Tennessee. Rep. John Mark Windle recently introduced legislation that would create a fund to pay for the design, construction, establishment and maintenance of a Dolly statue at the Tennessee Capitol.

“[She’s] a passionate person who loves everyone, and everyone loves her,” Windle explained, according to “The Tennessean.” “At this point in history, is there a better example, not just in America but in the world, of a leader that is kind, decent, passionate human being?”

Once the fund is created, the State Capitol Commission would be in charge of making sure the statue happens.
