Dolly Parton Sacrifices False Hair, Eyelashes and Nails for Ice Bucket Challenge

Dolly Parton Sacrifices False Hair, Eyelashes and Nails for Ice Bucket Challenge

Most of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenges we’ve seen so far have found the victims in shorts and T-shirts or swimming suits, ready to receive the chilly shower.

But not Dolly Parton.

Leave it to her to even get super-soaked in style.

Dolly accepted the challenge from Kenny Rogers. Her nieces Rebecca and Hannah had the honors of dousing their legendary aunt, but not before she removed her jewelry and her scarf, but not her shoes.

She joked, “Oh, my shoes are plastic, but then again, so is the rest of me.”

Dolly chose not to challenge anyone else, but instead asked that everyone make a generous donation. And she sent a message back to Kenny, saying, “You’ve got to pay extra for the wet T-shirt contest.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
