Throwback Thursday: Halloween as Dolly Parton

JMBushnell as Dolly Parton

I was raised in a house of country music. I can sing along to all the “vintage” tunes of the likes of Dolly, Conway Twitty, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Jeannie C. Riley, and the rest of the musical brat pack of their day.

For my first ever “Throwback Thursday,” I give you me, age 9, as Dolly Parton, complete with wig and false eyelashes. This is one of the few times I’ve ever been photographed with dangling earrings. I have always preferred studs–stud earrings.

This was taken at my elementary school, Toler Elementary in Garland, Texas. I believe the school held a Halloween party for the students.
