Dolly Parton has revealed she is hoping to record a dance anthem in the near future and has a number of songs for her gay fans in the pipeline
Dolly Parton wants to record a dance anthem.
The 68-year-old star - who performed to over 150,000 people at Glastonbury festival in Somerset, South West England last month - has revealed she would love to make some more upbeat music and cater to her gay following.
According to Digital Spy, she said: "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."
Meanwhile, the 'Jolene' hitmaker - who last night (14.07.14) played the last date of her 'Blue Smoke' world tour - has been inspiring young musicians, including fellow Glastonbury performer Jake Bugg.
He told the Daily Star newspaper: "I'm a fan of Dolly's beautiful voice and great songs. She's a woman with great stories, so Dolly is pretty cool.
"I've recently been coming up with new ideas for songs and have come up with country ideas.
"Next year I'd like to have some time off to travel around the southern states, Nashville and Memphis, and hang out, get inspired, see what happens.
"Maybe I'll make a country album, which would be pretty sweet."
