Dolly Parton Treats 'The Voice' To a Fantastic Performance
One of the reasons we love Dolly so much is that she has such a great range — she can belt out a spirited gospel or country tune like nobody’s business! But she also has a softer side, and it’s very sweet as well.
Dolly showcased her sweet softer side well when she performed one of her folk favorites, “Coat of Many Colors,” for the judges and audience at NBC’s “The Voice” — and her performance was just perfection!
The quintessential Dolly Parton hit immortalizes a story about a special coat from her childhood; it was made of rags, but was a cherished hand-made gift from her mother. Folks have often wondered if there really was a coat like this in Dolly’s youth: The answer is yes!
Dolly’s childhood coat really was a product of her mother's handiwork, exactly as the song describes. The actual coat is on display at Dollywood, in the Chasing Rainbows Museum. It is truly a rags-to-riches story, brought to life through Dolly’s beautiful voice!
