I have always, always said I wished Dolly Parton (and/or Cher) was my Mom. Now I get the next best thing. Dolly Parton will be reading us bedtime stories to keep alive a love of reading and stories in troubled times.

Until Dolly starts up, there's Chris Evans reading children's books.

Dolly Parton has one thing in common with my dad: the older I get, the more I realize that (s)he is smart and honest and awesome.

I am utterly serious when I say, "Dolly in 2020."

Best Dolly story I ever heard was in a doc on 9to5, her first film. She shows up for the first line reading, where you just sit around a table and read the script together, no memorizing required (yet), having not just memorized her lines for the day, but the entire script, everyone else's lines too. Day one. Off book. Damn, Dolly.

It's just a crying shame she can't do this together with her greatest duet partner, Kenny Rogers.
