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.

The real surprise in Monroe‘s stories about Parton is that once, Monroe dressed up like Parton in a parade and wore balloons in her dress. That’d be a sight.

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.

I was ridin’ Dolly. ? #bunkbedhead
