Dolly Parton Got Wig Stuck in Tree

Thursday, May 26, 2011

DOLLY Parton got her wig stuck in a tree.

The 9 to 5 hitmaker is famous for her varied hairpieces, and she admits wearing them can often lead to disaster — not only when she is on stage.

“There are always nightmares when you wear a wig and I usually do, even if it’s just a little short one,” she said.

“One time I was riding a bicycle with my best friend Judy Ogle and I hadn’t pinned my wig on that well. We went to this little grove with an overhanging tree. As I cycled under it, I saw Judy crying with laughter. I turned around and there was my hair hanging from a branch. I had to quickly turn around and snatch my hair off the tree.

“Then another time I was doing a show and my fiddle player got his bow stuck in my hair. Every time he played a note, I could feel my hair piece lifting up. I was fighting to keep it on.”

Dolly also admitted she sometimes finds it difficult to play guitar wearing false nails, but thinks she has learned how to manage quite well with her long talons.

“I’ve always been able to play with them. Of course, I do my best playing when I take off these acrylic nails but I have learned how to work it with them on,” she added.

“My right hand is fine, they’re like picks but it’s my left hand I have to be careful with. I van do it through plenty of years of practice.”
