DOLLY PARTON HONORED BY COUNTRY DEEJAYS

Last Tuesday night, Dolly Parton was honored with a career achievement award at the annual Country Music DJ Hall of Fame dinner in Nashville. Proving that her wit is just as strong as her voice, she brought the house down with her description of the music industry. "I think of country radio like a great lover," she quipped. "You were great to me. You bought me a lot of nice things, and then you dumped my a** for younger women." At the dinner, Dolly was presented with a plaque in recognition of selling more than 24 million albums. She was also honored with a musical tribute by Martina McBride and new Aussie artist Catherine Britt, who performed Dolly classics including "I Will Always Love You," "Coat of Many Colors" and "Little Sparrow." "I guess you guys thought I couldn't sing my own [songs] without an iron lung, but you'd be surprised," Dolly joked.
