“There might be a safety pin in the nose, but there’s a hillbilly in the heart.”
I can’t say that I was ever obsessed with Dolly. What got me into this queen was the book Dumplin’. Plus size gal who adored Dolly and strutted her stuff to her songs. Sold! I instantly became a fan and started singing her songs all over the house. Pretty sure my husband was sick of me. And all I had to say was… “They let you dream, Just to watch ’em shatter, You’re just a step, On the boss-man’s ladder”
And if Dumplin’ didn’t grasp your soul, then her Coat of Many Colors did. With love in your heart and ugly tears streaming down your face, you were sold of that ol’ gal.
She has lead one hell of an incredible life. Letting no one stand in her way and not letting words stop her.
Growing up in a very poor community, people picked on her and made her feel that what she appreciated wasn’t enough. She pushed on and overcame with her head held high and love in her heart. Not even the devil could touch that with a ten foot pole.
All through her life she suffered from criticism and sexism, but with the bright light in ths sky licking upon her shoulders, she had nothing to lose.
From a young age she knew she was destined to be a somebody and not just a lazy housewife popping out ten kids.
This autobiography was not one to mess with and will sweep you on your ass. She put her heart and soul out for the world to see and wants only your love and support in return. And if it’s hatred you want to spread, then lets get the bread out.
If you’re looking for an uplifting memior, look no further. And if you need all the D’s, you have arrived at the right place.
