NASHVILLE (AP) — Dolly Parton (below, AP Pic) has written hundreds of songs over her decades-long career and it turns out her tune Jolene is the just right one for getting her COVID-19 vaccine.
“I even changed one of my songs to fit the occasion. It goes, ‘Vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, vaccine, I’m begging of you please don’t hesitate’,” the humanitarian sang in a social media post.
The Grammy-winning legend turned 75 this year. In 2020, she donated USD1 million to Vanderbilt University Medical Center for coronavirus research. Parton had earlier told The Associated Press that she was going to wait until it became more widely available because she didn’t want to look like she was jumping the line.
