OFFSTAGE: Dolly Parton Has the Best Tweets

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

According to Time magazine, Dolly Parton’s tweets are some of the best ones out there. They voted hers as one of the “140 Best Twitter Feeds of 2012.” If you aren’t one of the 1.6 million folks who follow Parton, you should be. (But be careful. She is not @dollyparton. She is actually @Dolly_Parton .) Time says Parton made the list because she has a wealth of experience she puts into her tweets. “When a legacy this great tweets, we listen. Because she’s Dolly, but mostly, because she’s usually right,” they say. Which makes Time absolutely right. Here are a few of Parton’s recent bits of Twitter wisdom:

“My desire to do things & know what’s out there has always been greater than my fear. I was more scared of staying home than of leaving it.”

“I wish I could stay 21 forever. Don’t we all? But I won’t ever be old in my heart or in my mind.”

“I think that all creative people are a little bit nuts.”

“Find out who you are and do it on purpose.”

“I never, ever get involved in #politics. With politics you are not allowed to be honest. I don`t have time to deal with that.”
