Not only was there a petition by fans to create a Dolly Parton statue, but there was also actually a Bill proposing it. The Bill proposes that a new statue of Dolly Parton be put on state Capitol grounds in Tennessee. Now Dolly is asking them to remove the Bill.

Dolly shared a message on social media. She wrote, “I want to thank the Tennessee legislature for their consideration of a bill to erect a statue of me on the Capitol grounds. I am honored and humbled by their intention but I have asked the leaders of the state legislature to remove the bill from any and all consideration.”

The statement continued, “Given all that is going on in the world, I don’t think putting me on a pedestal is appropriate at this time. I hope, though, that somewhere down the road several years from now or perhaps after I’m gone if you still feel I deserve it, then I’m certain I will stand proud in our great State Capitol as a grateful Tennessean.”
