The world is mourning the death of legendary actress Betty White who died Friday morning, December 31, at the age of 99. While we’re all huge fans of the actress, she herself was a fan of country music’s own legend, Dolly Parton.
In a 2010 interview with The Boot, White confessed her love of country music and of Dolly Parton.
“Country music tells stories, and it’s also basic,” Betty said. “It’s the kind of music that reaches right inside of you because it’s simple and it’s direct. I just enjoy it thoroughly. It’s relaxing and nostalgic. It can turn on some lovely memories and sometimes some poignant ones.”
