Dolly Parton has Broadway musical on her bucket list

Dolly Parton wants her life story to be made into a musical on Broadway when she dies.

The 70-year-old country music legend has plenty of things left to do on her bucket list, including starting her very own beauty line, and even beyond the grave she has ambitions as she wants her story turned into a show sound tracked by her own songs when passes away.

In an interview with Paper magazine, she said: "I've got buckets on both sides. I do someday hope to see my life story on Broadway as a musical. I'd love to have a cosmetic line. As far as a bucket list, I think I do pretty much what I want - just takes a lot of time sometimes."

The '9 to 5' hitmaker is about to embark on her biggest tour in 25 years and plans on telling stories about her life through her songs and how she grew up in her grandfather's church.

Asked what her favourite tour traditions are, she said: "I always talk about (the song) 'Coat of Many Colors' and my mom. Now that the 'Coat of Many Colors' movie did so well, I also wrote a song called 'Mama' that I'll probably sing before I start talking about the home section [of the show]. I'll be talking about my grandpa and how I was brought up, which means a lot to me. I'll be doing my gospel segment from the fact that I grew up in my grandpa's church."

The buxom blonde beauty will visit over 60 cities across North America in support of her brand new double-disc release, 'Pure & Simple With Dolly's Biggest Hits'.

Of the tour, she previously said: "We're so excited to get out there and see the fans again. I'm really looking forward to singing songs the fans have not heard in a while, as well as the hits, while debuting a few new ones off 'Pure & Simple'."
