My daughter and I are lifetime fans and last October celebrated her birthday with a trip to Tennessee. We planned to go all the way to Pigeon Forge but decided to stay at Nashville as we fell in love with the City. Our highlight was a night at the Grand Ole Opry and just a warm feeling of being in a place you love so much. We attended your concert in 2011 at the Hunter Valley, Newcastle and had the best night of our lives, the feeling in the audience was simply electric.
I'm getting married this year (2nd time) and my beautiful partner had agreed we fly to Nashville to get married and then drive on to Pigeon Forge as I didn't get there last year. I can't wait to return to Tennessee, It is truly a beautiful place and I recommend it as a holiday destination. The people, food, country music, everything is just fabulous. We purchased 6 pairs of 'boot scootin' boots and everyone at home wants a pair!
Dolly, I am a Clinical Psychologist and have my own practice. You have always been my inspiration behind my motivation to achieve and I want you to know I have a framed photo of you in my therapy room as a symbol of that motivation. I often rattle off little lines from your songs such as 'keep your eye on the prize' or 'gotta get to livin'. I'm sure you know you have touched many and I wanted to know how you touched my daughter's and my life, and now my grandsons aged 10 and 5 are fans and sing your song Sacrifice word for word. So over here in Australia you are loved across generations!
Thank you just for being you.
