Dolly Parton is a fuckin' genius!

"Dolly was a huge inspiration to me as a child. A tiny woman with a huge voice. A beautiful high and free voice. Glorious to hear. She has demonstrated for women the world over how much can be achieved by the power of the female voice. She ought not be underestimated I guess, as some people kind of laugh when you say you're into Dolly Parton. But she's a fucking genius. And what's more, she's paying her own damn bills!"
- Sinéad O'Connor


This is the truth. Dolly Parton is a fucking genius.

In fact, on any sane world... No. Let's stick with a similarly insane world, just one in which the writer of "I Will Always Love You", "Jolene" or "Coat Of Many Colors", to leave out dozens of equal examples, was a man wasn't considered a genius by everyone who spoke his name just wouldn't be plausible. Sure, she's fostered some of that with her campy/trashy/silly image, but still... Elton John gets his props, doesn't he?

Ponderin' Country's Brainiest Beauty by Hannah Levin says more. Some that I probably couldn't say, and some that I'm feeling a little too lazy to say.
