Dolly Parton took to her socials just minutes ago making a statement to Tennessee state lawmakers who have agreed to erect a statue of her at the State Capitol in Nashville. In a short letter, Parton asked them not to do it.

Dolly wrote, “I want to thank the Tennessee legislature for their consideration of a bill to erect a statue of me on the Capitol grounds. I am honored and humbled by their intention but I have asked leaders of the state legislature to remove the bill from any and all consideration.”

She continued, “Given all that is going on in the world, I don’t think putting me on a pedestal is appropriate at this time. I hope though that somewhere down the road several years from now or perhaps after I am gone if you still feel I deserve it, then I’m certain I will stand proud in our great State Capitol as a grateful Tennessean.”

Parton added, “In the meantime, I will continue to try to do good work to make this great state proud.”
