“When I write songs, I tell stories about things that have happened in my life or how I’m feeling at the time. Let’s find out which one is a perfect reflection of you,” Dolly Parton said of her BuzzFeed quiz titled “Which Dolly Parton Song Are You?”
I’m “Blue Smoke,” the title track from Parton’s brand new album that was released Tuesday (May 13). That’s the conclusion the quiz came to after I answered a series of questions.
Like the one about what is your go-to accessory for a fancy night out? I was torn between “the more bling the better” and “my cowboy boots go with everything” because, really, cowboy boots and bling is the best look for me. But ultimately, I chose boots. (And by the way, they are pretty blingy boots, thanks to the crystal-obsessed boot makers at Old Gringo.)
When the quiz asks about favorite TV shows, you’d think I’d automatically check the Nashville box. But I chose Scandal because no matter how much I love Rayna James, I love Olivia Pope more.
Then the quiz asks how I’d spend $100 if I found it. Since there wasn’t a “buy more cowboy boots” option, I picked happy hour.
There’s also a question about how you’d react of your boss hit on you. I checked the “slap him so fast he won’t know what hit him” box. Which really should be the only possible answer.
And at the end of the quiz, this is what I learned about my Dolly Parton self:
“You are the epitome of a Southern belle. You are not a dweller. You know what you want in life, and you won’t stop until you get it. If one thing doesn’t work out for you, you do not waste any time moving on to the next big thing. … You are always searching for ways to better yourself and positive people to surround yourself with. Even when times are hard, you tend to never give up.”
