Dolly Parton has suggested that she could record a studio version of the 'mud song' she wrote and performed at Glastonbury this year.

The singer's Sunday afternoon set was one of the biggest draws at this year's festival and saw well over 100,000 people turn up to see her perform classic hits such as 'Jolene' and '9 To 5.' The untitled mud song, which saw Parton rapping, received a good reception from the crowd, who sang its chorus "mud, mud, mud" with gusto.

In a new interview with The Sun on Friday (July 25), Parton suggested that she could record a proper version of the song and that it may become a Glastonbury standard. ''I'm getting such demand for the mud song that we're talking about recording it. There have been so many requests," she said. ''There is talk about getting a different artist to perform it every year.''

While at Glastonbury Dolly Parton also nearly became the owner of a stray dog. When the singer heard about an animal being abandoned after the festival, she said she would adopt it if no one claimed ownership.

However, the owners of the dog subsequently came forward to collect their pet, meaning Parton won't have to adopt it.
