"People always ask me how long it takes to do my hair. I don't know, I'm never there." Dolly Parton
Dolly Would takes us into the uber-kitsch world of the Dolly Parton tribute act - a world of rhinestone encrusted cocktail dresses, silver fringed pedal pushers and star-spangled stetsons. But most of all, it's a world of music: From 9 to 5 to Jolene, Dolly's hits are irresistible.
But as aspiring singer Denize falls under Dolly's spell, it's not long before the wigs get heavier and the makeup thicker. "Once there was a Dolly Parton look-alike contest on Santa Monica Boulevard - Dolly lined up with all the other contestants and she lost. How could I look like a woman who doesn't even look like herself?".
By Alison Carr. Denize falls in love with washed-out Kenny Rogers impersonator Martin.
