Dolly Parton Enjoys Hollywood During Emmy Weekend

As Hollywood gears up for the Emmy Awards Sunday night, celebrities are making their rounds to the pre-award parties, including country music icon Dolly Parton, who commented that she’s excited to be included in the mix. 

The 71-year-old singer told the Associated Press "all the parties, seeing all the stars... I still get a kick out of it… I’m a country girl.

Parton is among this year’s nominees for Outstanding Television Movie for Dolly Parton's Christmas Of Many Colors: Circle Of Love.

Also staying true to her downhome ways, Parton mentioned she spent some time cooking before gracing the red carpet festivities. 

"Well, I made some sausage and biscuits for my trip home on the bus after the shows are over. And I made some chicken and dumplings, a few little groceries that I put together," she said.

"See, I travel in my tour bus and I always cook my own food. So that was not very glamorous, but it was good.”
