In response to the donation¬†Vanderbilt University Medical Center released the statement “We are incredibly grateful to Dolly for believing in our doctors and researchers as we work hard to fight COVID-19.”¬†

Well, now that fight has paid off…as a vaccine has been produced, and the distribution of it has been rolling out over the last couple of months.

Now nearly a year after her financial pledge, Dolly is getting to benefit from it as she received the vaccine.

Dolly captured the moment she received the Moderna shot from Dr. Naji Abumrad. She even joked about changing the lyrics of her classic “Jolene” to “Vaccine” to fit the occasion.

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch & MacKenzie Porter talk about “Thinking ‘Bout You”

Dustin Lynch recalls the exact moment during the writing of “Thinking ‘Bout You” when they thought it could work as a collaboration, “We realized, after we got to the chorus, wait a second, this is the duet moment we’ve been looking for. We can have the girl on the other end of the line, and her come in on the second verse, and now it’s a conversation. And I do think that’s why it’s so approachable and people relate to it and those phone calls can be life changing sometimes.”

As the song is knocking on the door to the number-one spot on the country music airplay chart, MacKenzie Porter shares that she and Dustin haven’t had a lot of opportunities to perform the hit song together, “The crazy part is like, we’ve actually probably sang it separately, more than we’ve sang it together, because our touring schedules are different. So then when we do get to do it together, it’s like oh yeah this is how, this is how it’s supposed to go, I’m not supposed to sing Dustin’s first verse, which I do in my own show. It just feels so natural.”
