Dolly Parton keen to make a ‘dance record for the gay community’

The country singer discusses her song 'Just A Wee Bit Gay'

Dolly Parton has said she is keen to make a dance album for her gay following.

Speaking at a press conference – via Digital Spy – the country singer commented: “At some point I would like to do a dance record and I have several songs that are very positive towards the gay community. I have a song called ‘Just A Wee Bit Gay’. It’s a great little dance tune, it’s funny and it’s got a lot of comic in it. I do write a lot of songs along those lines with people that are different and are just themselves.”

Last month Parton played to one of Glastonbury’s biggest-ever crowds. Parton is currently touring her new album ‘Blue Smoke’, and will play the final show tonight (July 14) in Locarno, Switzerland. She has promised to continue work on the musical and accompanying film of her life story.
