Dolly Parton Moved Stephen Colbert To Tears During Impromptu Performance

Dolly Parton Made Stephen Colbert Cry On 'The Late Show' – Here's Why

Parton admits that she and her siblings often cried with their mother would sing to them, to which Colbert asks her, "Isn't it amusing that sometimes there's nothing happier than a cry?" Before ending her own life, she asks her friend to bury her under the weeping willows so that maybe when her former lover finds out she has died, the tree will make him think of her (via Bluegrass Messengers).

DOLLY PARTON: (SINGING) Perhaps he'll weep for me. When Parton stopped singing, she said, "So I better hush before you cry yourself to death and we can't finish the show".

Parton appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Tuesday night (Oct. 20) to discuss her new book Songteller, and the pair's conversation turned to music that Parton's mother, Avie Lee, used to sing to the now country legend and her 11 siblings. "That was pretty lovely", (via People). Dolly. And, uh, you're right there under my wire.

Parton related to Colbert's emotional moment saying, "We used to cry when Mama would sing. Mama would cry, we'd cry".

"Isn't amusing sometimes there's nothing happier than a cry?"


"Yes, it seems to cleanse your soul", Parton replied. Water is good to wash it out.

"So many of those songs were sad, and as I say, some of them just "plum pitiful, '" she said with a laugh".

Making her film debut in the 1980 hit comedy "9 to 5", Dolly earned rave reviews for her performance and an Oscar nomination for writing the title tune, along with her second and third Grammy Awards. "That's what it's for, I think".

"I got very emotional recording 'Mary, Did You Know?' It's the sweetest song about attractive things being born out of unexpected situations and that's a message we all need to hear now more than ever", she wrote on Instagram in August of the "heartfelt" rendition.
