It shouldn’t come as a major surprise to anyone that Ashley Monroe counts Dolly Parton as a major musical influence in her life. Both country music singer-songwriters are from East Tennessee and both stick to their traditional roots in their songs.
During this backstage interview at the Grand Ole Opry, Monroe also discussed a letter she received from Parton once and the impact it has had on her career.
Monroe even has a “Dolly” license plate on her bike.
