Dolly Parton, 76, says she done touring


Dolly Parton won’t be working “9 to 5″ on the road anymore.

The 10-time Grammy-winning country music icon confirmed the end of her touring career in a new interview with Pollstar magazine.

“I do not think I will ever tour again, but I do know I’ll do special shows here and there, now and then,” Parton said.

“Maybe do a long weekend of shows, or just a few shows at a festival. But I have no intention of going on a full-blown tour anymore.”

Parton last hit the road for 60 shows throughout the U.S. and Canada in 2016 to support her “Pure & Simple” album.

With a slew of other business pursuits, Parton is still keeping busy.

On Nov. 5, the “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas” star will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame alongside Carly Simon, Eminem, Lionel Richie and more.

On Friday, NBC announced “Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas” will air on Dec. 1 at 8 p.m. ET. The two-hour special, described as a “modern-day movie musical,” will include guest stars Jimmy Fallon, Willie Nelson, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmie Allen, Zach Williams and Miley Cyrus, who is Parton’s godchild.

On the new music front, Parton revealed plans to record another version of the Led Zeppelin classic “Stairway to Heaven” on a rock album she’s working on.

“I did it kind of bluegrass-style when I did it,” Parton told Pollstar of her 2002 cover of the song.

“But when I do the rock album, I’m going to actually re-record it — and do it more true to the regular record. I’m trying to see if Robert Plant might sing on it. Maybe Jimmy Page might do the pick-up part on it. I’m looking forward to dragging in some of the great classic people, girls and boys, to sing on some of the songs. I’m not far enough along to discuss who and what, but I am going to do an album.”
