Dolly Parton: 'I would never retire' I?ll hopefully drop dead in the middle of a song'
I think some people have superstitions about retiring. I had a science teacher in his seventies who refused to retire because he believed he would immediately die. My dad appears to be delaying his own retirement for that reason, at least thats my read on the situation. But there are also people who just dont want to retire at all. One of those people is living legend Dolly Parton. Shes 77 years old and shows no signs of slowing down. In a recent interview she said she doesnt plan on retiring, period, unless something happens to her health or her husband Carl Deans health. She says she hopes she drops dead while performing, which made me laugh.

Dolly would never retire: Dolly Parton is not one to sit around doing nothing. The 77-year-old country music legend made it clear she has no plans to retire anytime soon. ?I would never retire,? she told Greatest Hits Radio host Ken Bruce on Thursday. ?Ill just hopefully drop dead in the middle of a song onstage someday, hopefully one Ive written. But anyway, that?s how I hope to go because we dont have much of a choice in that. As long as Im able to work, as long as my health is good and my husband is good, the only way that I would ever slow down would be for that reason,? she explained. The ?Jolene? singer then declared, ?But in the meantime, Im going to make hay while the sun shines.?

What she plans to do in the future: When asked by Bruce if there is anything she hasn?t done that she?d like to do, the multihyphenate said, ?I have new dreams every day.? One of those dreams is owning her own network television show where she could produce a series about her own life called The Life of Many Colors, for instance.

Parton said she wants to show ?stuff that people haven?t seen or know or heard about and my people and where I come from, how I?ve got to be how and who I am, but to really have the behind the scenes and the adventures of my life.? Those glimpses into her life would include the different bands she has worked with and ?all the situations that can come from that ? the bad, the good, the ugly, the different.?

[From People]

I think Dolly is so creative and is living out all her dreams and passions, so thats why she wont retire. Shed get bored! But she clearly has built in enough time for herself to rest, otherwise theres no way she could keep doing everything that shes doing. Id totally watch a docuseries about Dolly. There already is one on Netflix but I found it pretty surface level. If anyone wants to learn more about Dollys life, Id recommend her memoir, or if you want less of a time commitment, the podcast Dolly Partons America. But to hear more industry storiesnow that would be interesting. Dollys been in the music industry since the 1960s. You know shes got some stories. But shell never spill the real tea, because shes too classy for that. Shes always been way too nice about Porter Wagoner, the country singer who put her on his popular TV show and helped her career growbut then got jealous and controlling when he realized her star power would inevitably eclipse his. Maybe shell loosen up a bit and tell us some hot gossip, but even if she doesnt, Ill still watch whatever she puts out.
