Dolly Parton Tells Story Behind Secret Song She Buried Until She’s 99

Want to hear the latest and greatest tune from the one and only Dolly Parton?  No problem! However, the only catch is you’ll just have to wait a couple more decades to actually hear it.

During a recent appearance on “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” the legendary singer told fellow musician Kelly Clarkson about a song that will not be played until Dolly turns 99 years old.

At the 1:21-minute mark in the video, Kelly breaches the topic, asking Dolly whether or not that is actually true. Dolly responds, confirming that not only is it true but that she actually regrets the move.

“Yes, and that has drove me crazy,” Dolly said.

Dolly, 76,  then goes on to tell Kelly about the circumstances surrounding the move to keep anyone from listening to the yet-to-be-released track.

“But it’s when we did Dollywood, when we worked on that. And we put it in a time capsule to be, you know, to be opened,” Dolly said.

Dolly added that, “And so, and I put all the things that had to do with the times. I put a cassette player, I put a, all the CD player. I put stuff all in this box that if, if it would preserve it to what, how played those, you know, at the time. But I put that in the box. But I had to write this song that nobody was going to hear till then. And I tell you have no idea how that has bothered me.” Dolly said.

While you and I may still have to wait more than 20 years to hear the hidden track, Dolly promises that you will enjoy it.

“I wanna go dig that up so bad and think ‘Well, I need to use that song’ cause it’s. . . a really good song,” she said.

As to who came up with the bright idea to bury one of Dolly’s songs, she confesses that she has no inclination as to who came up with that plan.

In addition to hiding away a song, Dolly also tells Kelly that she wrote and performed a song in a Pig Latin with help from her siblings.
