“I’ve been working on my life story as a musical,” Parton told Underwood. When Underwood asked the country legend who might get to play her, she replied, “I think Kristin Chenoweth would be real good.”
Chenoweth was a special guest on the program and made her desire to sing with Dolly known in several comedy bits. “But seriously, I’m hoping that she might possibly do that when I get finished,” Parton said.
Toward the end of their chat, which led into “I Will Always Love You,” Parton added that she hadn’t made up her mind and told Underwood that with enough padding on top, she could also fill her boots.
