  1. I am more than likly her youngest fan. Have loved every song she ever sung.I have always dreamed of meeting her or at least get an autogragh from her she is my fav singer. I also want to be the girl in movies.

  2. I love this song! However I just listened to The Pure and Simple CD for the first time in several months, still my second favorite Album of Dolly.  First is New Harvest…First Gathering. Dolly's production of Holdin' on to you was incredible.  How can you mess up that song with Elle King on it? I am a life long Dolly fan and own everything Dolly has recorded or at least released to the public.  I wanted more from the Dumplin' CD, of course I bought it I even have two copies one even sighed by DOLLY, I guess Dolly does know Dolly best.

  3. good album for her .. expanding horizons . kinda like folk songs . her personality sells as a combo . she very smart as well and nice . haha . remember being kid her kenny in hay day ..

  4. Oh…My…Gracious…God! Dolly's STILL GOT IT!!! I didn't "like" this music video/song……… I "LOVED" it!!! ~Rockin Matt @ CDBABY.COM & CDUNIVERSE.COM

  5. Hey voice has aged like crazy. If you hear Jolene versus this. Her range was crazy and her vibratos way more controlled back then. But this sounds a lot more mature. Broken but beautiful. It adds a genuine feeling to it.

  6. I love Dolly's songs that she has written much more than her singing voice. She has a hit with this song in the melody and lyrics that are touching and hopeful. I love her personality and her constant expression of joy in her attitude towards life. And the fact that she refuses to talk about politics and sticks to what she does best. Always gracious.

  7. dolly parton is my favorite singer in the world. i never new she was a singer until my grandma turned on her music and i told her who is this singer. and i loved it so much thank u grandma and love u dolly parton u the best in the world.

    Bỏng ngô, soda, hộp Raisinets

    Ghế đệm nhung và tay vịn mềm

    Chỗ ngồi tốt nhất trong nhà chiếu phim yêu thích của tôi

    Bắt đầu giấc mơ của tôi khi đèn tắt

    Trên màn hình bạc, tôi hình dung tôi

    Sống với đam mê, hy vọng và tưởng tượng của tôi

    [Điệp khúc 1]

    Tôi muốn trở thành cô gái trong phim

    Người có ánh mắt sáng ngời

    Cô gái hiếm khi thua cuộc

    Đẹp, duyên dáng và phong cách.

    Diễn xuất câu chuyện của cô ấy

    Đứng trong vinh quang của cô

    Hạnh phúc mãi mãi về sau

    Tôi muốn trở thành cô gái trong phim

    [Câu 2]

    Ước gì tôi có một niken cho mỗi xu tôi đã dành

    Nhìn người khác sống cuộc sống của họ với sự tự tin

    Đây là bản xem trước của một số thứ sẽ đến

    Không quá muộn để tôi trở thành một người

    Tôi không thể tiếp tục sống trong niềm tin của họ

    Các điểm tham quan sắp tới sẽ có sự tham gia của tôi

  10. My grandmother lives in Tennessee right by were Dolly lives which is by Dollywood. When ever I hear Dolly's voice I think of my Grandma. She isn't even from Tennessee but I still think of her when I her Dolly's voice. My grandma has always loved county music and she got me into it. Maryland isn't even that county

  11. Dolly Parton is one of my favorites, I love seeing her on television preform at the Grand Ole' Opry I was raised on this bluegrass and country that told stories and I miss those days.

  16. Η νιοτη έφυγε μαζί Κ η ασπρόμαυρη Αμερική οι μεγάλοι ουρανοξύστες. Τότε που η Αμερική ήταν όνειρο. Απροσυτο. Εφηβικοι έρωτες στις χοροσπεριδες. Τρικαβαλο για θάλασσα. Η νιοτη έφυγε και ένα δακρυ τρέχει

  17. an artist that leaves goosebumps all over you is truly a start !!! Love you Dolly

  18. This is 1 of my favorite movies,I've always loved Dolly Parton but now I listen to her as often as I can.

  19. Dolly Parton, I am Ellie – Louise, and im 11 years old. My mom told me about you she made you sound so awesome and I had to check out your music!! Its amazing! You actually met my mom once she has your auto graph and my mom said i can have it!! 🙂 You have made my sad scenes of my movie turn into a cheerful scene and for that! Thank you~

  20. This movie made me open up my eyes and made me finally believe in myself that I am beautiful inside and out, and this song was the cherry on top.

  21. I love Dolly's heart. I have loved her since I was 10 years old. I dreamed of growing up and recording with her. I told my mother I was going to meet her one day and perform with her. That never happened but I will always love her forever and a day and when I leave this journey, I will meet her on the other side. I feel it 🙂

  22. growing up I idolized Dolly Parton; now I'm all grown up I realize I still do. I'm grateful my lifelong idol has such depth and kindness
