Dolly appears on Jimmy Fallon
Hello Dolly! Recently on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon Miss Parton told a story about growing up in the smoky mountains and went on a date at 17 or 18 that went all sorts of wrong. “I dated a guy and he kicked me out of a car and made me walk home through a forest with bears and bobcats.” Fallon asked if the country icon came across the bears and bobcats?” “Absolutely,” Parton said she “heard them, felt them.” And went onto say that “It was a put out or get out situation, and that she did learn something that night,” she said. “if that ever happens to me again, I’m definitely giving it up. I would rather be chewed on by a boy than a bear.”
