Five Reasons You Should Love Dolly Parton Without Irony or Reservations (that aren’t “Jolene”)

The way her voice drips in like syrup when she comes into her & Porter Wagoner’s cover of “Dark End of the Street.”

How her soaring harmony line is anchored to earth by Porter Wagoner’s voice on “Always, Always.”

She crafted an epic break-up song so perfect and crafted that Whitney Houston and the rest of America thought it was just a dumb power ballad.

The song “Bargain Store,” which is inexplicably not the biggest hit song of all time.

You can not fuck with her country game.
