Dolly Parton Won’t Retire, Hopes To Drop Dead On Stage.


Dolly Parton has no plans to slow down any time soon.

The 77-year-old country music legend told Greatest Hits Radio host Ken Bruce Thursday (July 13th), “I would never retire. I'll just hopefully drop dead in the middle of a song onstage someday, hopefully one I've written. But anyway, that’s how I hope to go because we don't have much of a choice in that.”

The “Jolene” singer added that she’ll continue working as long as she and her husband stay healthy.
