“Hope they don't kick me out if they don't win!”
Dolly Parton plans to lend a bit of her “power” to the Tennessee Volunteers during their game against Georgia this weekend. And let’s face it, if there’s any celebrity who has an in with the man upstairs, it’s Dolly.
In the newest episode of Southern Living’s Biscuits & Jam podcast, Parton talks about everything from wardrobe malfunctions to Miley Cyrus, as well as an upcoming appearance at Neyland Stadium.
The proud Tennessee native is partnering with The University of Tennessee Athletics Department on an exclusive Vols Edition of her Rockstar album, including a live version of "Rocky Top."
“As a little bonus track for the Tennessee [fans],” Parton tells editor-in-chief Sid Evans of the inclusion of the beloved school anthem. But that’s not all the country legend has in store for Vols fans.
“I'm gonna be up there. I'm gonna actually sing ‘Rocky Top’ up there on the 18th… The day they play Georgia,” she goes on to reveal. “I'm gonna go up and just be there and just say, ‘hey,’ to everybody, and probably... Probably sing a little bit of ‘Rocky Top’ with the crowd, too.”

Last season’s showdown between the rivals ended with a 27 to 13 win for the Georgia Bulldogs. Evans, a Memphis native and big Vols fan, joked that Tennessee needs “all the help we can get” against the top-ranked team.
“Maybe... Maybe I'll have a little...little power, I don't know,” Parton offers. “Hope they don't kick me out if they don't win!”
