Fans can watch Dolly receive her honorary doctorate from the University of Tennessee live on the web today starting at 9 AM EST by visiting this link. Dolly told the Knoxville News Sentinel that the focus of her speech will be on ‘dreams’, saying “I’ll talk about how I, as a young girl, had some dreams and made them come true. There’s a difference between wishes and dreams. I want to sort of define the difference for them. I want to give them some helpful hints.”
Then don’t forget to watch Dolly again when the 24th Annual Dolly Parton Parade is broadcast live from Pigeon Forge on Smokies.tv starting at 6 PM EST. Dolly will also be making various appearances in Dollywood on Saturday to promote her new musical “Sha-Kon-O-Hey!”.
