Recently on the red carpet at the 24th Annual Movieguide Awards, Parton has made her views on retirement very clear to The Mirror.
“I’ve been doing this all my life and I’m excited every day. I still love it,” she admitted. “I’d never retire. I wouldn’t ever know what to do.“
Further declaring her intention on foregoing retirement, she said, “The only thing that would stop me is if I couldn’t go on for health reasons. I hope I never stop.”
Parton’s most recent project – a movie based on her song “Coat Of Many Colors” was released over the 2015 holiday season and attracted over 13 million viewers. She is pushing forward with her film career and was joined on the red carpet by her cast members from the movie.
