In a career that has spanned 50 years, you would expect that Dolly Parton has seen it all and absolutely nothing could surprise the poised and confident country music superstar. But, you’re wrong!
It was a normal meet-and-greet at one of Dolly’s recent shows on her current Pure & Simple Tour. Dolly greets her fans, chats for a moment and takes a sweet photo to capture the memory for eternity. But on this particular night, that meet-and-greet turned into a little bit more for one unsuspecting Dolly and an even more oblivious fan.
As the queen of country was chatting with sweet fans Roger and Nicole, Roger dropped to one knee and pulled out a sparkling engagement ring. No, y’all, Dolly is already married! It was for sweet Nicole who was shocked to see her fella make the ultimate proposal in front of the country legend.
But, Dolly was equally surprised, too! In a post on her Instagram page, she wrote: “Well, this even surprised me! I just love love. Congratulations Roger and Nicole. Thank you for letting me be part of your special moment. #SheSaidYes”
In the accompanying video, Dolly gives the ring and the couple two thumbs up, claps her hands gleefully, then steps out of the way for the couple to embrace while she gives the camera a sneaky wink.
It. Is. Precious.
Remember, Dolly is hosting Smoky Mountains Rise: A Benefit for the My People Fund on Dec. 13 at 8 p.m. ET on GAC. It’s your chance to enjoy some great country music and help everyone affected by the Smoky Mountain wildfires.
