I have to say...I don't really like Dolly's music, but she's had a helluva neat life and is a good person. I saw her life story on A&E...she seems like a cool person who just totally knew what she wanted and went for it.
Anywho, I wish there was a Nanci Griffith threah...but alas, I don't think many know of her. She does folk music, and has for a long, long time. I was lucky enough to see one of her concerts...Emmylou Harris showed up too. I never knew much about her, but my Mom was thrilled...she seemed to be familliar with her.
