Still working ‘9 to 5,’ Dolly Parton marks 50 years at Opry

Country superstar Dolly Parton is still working “9 to 5,” and doing what she loves as she celebrated her 50th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member. The 73-year-old actress, singer and songwriter, who first played the Opry when she was just a teenager, played the longstanding radio show Saturday night in Nashville, Tennessee, in front of sold-out crowds. Hank Williams Jr., Lady Antebellum and Toby Keith performed in her honor as well and her shows capped off a week of Dolly-themed performances and events at the Opry.

Review: Dolly Parton proves style and substance shine brighter than glitter

From the blond wigs and the fake nails, to the painted-on face and more rhinestones than should be legal, Parton could easily be a caricature. Because what’s real about Dolly Parton, and what really matters about Dolly Parton, is that she is an unbelievable talent. Not only is she one of the greatest songwriters of our time, she has a voice that sounds as gorgeous and pure as it did when she was recording some of her earliest hits in the 1960s.

Expect touring version of ‘9 to 5’ to resemble 1980 film

Most people remember the 1980 movie version of “9 to 5” for its women’s lib vibe and its inspired casting. Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dolly Parton played the three put-upon women in the offices of Consolidated Companies, and Dabney Coleman played the tyrannical, egotistical, selfish, sexist pig of a boss.
