Dolly Parton stopped by ‘The Tonight Show’ Tuesday (May 13) and talked about growing up in Tennessee, her world tour and that signature blonde hair. Parton brought one of her famous wigs to the show and host Jimmy Fallon couldn’t say no when she asked him to try one on.
“I do wear wigs all the time because it’s so handy and I’m always so busy,” she explains. “I really enjoy wearing the wigs.”
So how many wigs does the country music icon have? “I have at least 365. One for each day,” she says with a laugh. Fallon reached behind his desk and pulled out one of her many wigs saying it looked like Parton’s twin sister.
“You should put it on,” she told ‘The Tonight Show’ host. When the crowd began to cheer, he just couldn’t say no. “I can’t believe he’s doing it,” Parton responded.
When Fallon got the wig all adjusted, he turned around and resembled someone from an 80s hair band. “I look like a rocker,” Fallon exclaimed. But being the optimist she is, Parton told him “you look cool.” Fallon suggests he even looks the part to join Parton while she’s on tour — as the opening act, of course.
The 68-year-old just released her album ‘Blue Smoke’ which has the title-track and a duet with Kenny Rogers called ‘You Can’t Make Old Friends.’ She’s about to kick off her U.S. portion of the 2014 Blue Smoke Tour. Full dates for her tour are here.
