Dolly Parton’s been in the entertainment industry for most of her 70 years and is a total living legend across any genre of music, but that doesn’t mean she’s ready to let herself go or give up life on the road.
This summer, Parton is headed out on her biggest tour in 25 years and she shared some of her secrets to staying slim and making the road a little more homey with People.
So, how does she stay so slim and fit into all of those elaborate clothes? For Parton, she told the magazine, it’s all about her diet, “I have to stay on a low-carb diet when I’m on the road because my show clothes are so tight and I can’t afford to gain like I used to in the past,. There is nothing more uncomfortable than trying to wear those tight-ass clothes when you’re too big for them! I have to work at it cause I’m a little old thing. I’m just 5’1″ and I still have that country girl appetite, so I have to watch it. I just cheat on holidays and special days and then eat the things I really love.”
That’s right, Parton stays away from carbs so her tight-ass clothes fit. No word on if she has a traveling gym with like Carrie Underwood, but her bus does have two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
