Dolly Parton is a fabulous national treasure.
Dolly released her first record in 1967 and has been a country legend ever since. Her unique style, amazing talent, and hard work has kept her at the top for decades. Every musician knows that their tour bus is their home away from home. Musicians, like Dolly Parton, spend months at a time on the road. Dolly has always been known for her style and her tour bus is no different. Dolly Parton made sure her tour bus is as fabulous as she is.
Obviously with a career as long as Dolly Parton’s she has had many tour buses. In 1994, she custom designed her own tour bus and named it the “Gypsy Wagon.” It was her pride and joy but after 600,000 miles Dolly retired the Gypsy Wagon in 2009. In classic Dolly style she parked it at her theme park, Dollywood, so visitors can take a tour of her beloved tour bus. While she retired the Gypsy Wagon she made sure to custom design a new tour bus.
A tour bus that was bigger and more stylish than the last.
“Her latest bus-turned-RV is a 2010 Prevost that cost $2.7 million. It’s 8 feet longer than her previous ride and features more slide outs, providing a lot more room than the 1994 bus,” The News Wheel states.
Dolly stopped by Harpo Studios in Chicago, Illinois to show off her new tour bus to Oprah Winfrey.
Dolly graciously welcomes Oprah onto her tour bus with her signature hair, makeup and sparkly outfit looking amazing. Dolly wants to start the tour from the back of the bus, but Oprah has to stop and talk about the fresh tomatoes on the kitchen counter. Dolly lets her know that she has fresh veggies sent in from Los Angeles, California! Dolly is on a low carb diet and she is making sure to stay on it, no matter what.
Dolly’s back room is her personal bedroom and bathroom and she has made sure that everything is pink and girly!
Dolly has a shower right next to her bedroom and it is quite small, but not for her. Dolly admits that she even can take a bath in the small tub because she is so tiny too. A mini shower/tub is all she needs on the road. Oprah is probably not the only one stunned by this admission, many viewers are too. While the small shower area is nice to check out, Oprah wants to know about the main event.
Where does Dolly Parton keep all her wigs?
Dolly keeps her wigs safe and close. Her wigs have their very own closet that is right next to her bed. Dolly admits that she lives in her bed and does most of her bus activity from her bed. When you are living in a tour bus, who could blame Dolly for choosing the most comfortable spot to do her work?
Dolly made sure to set up a prayer altar at the bottom of her bed.
“I always told you I have a little place to pray. This lets up also when we’re traveling, I’ll just take my little things. So, I could sit in the bed and do that or I can I want to kneel and pray I do that,” Dolly explains.
No bedroom, tour bus or not, for Dolly Parton would be complete without a vanity to put on her makeup. Once again, Dolly being so tiny has worked in her advantage on the tour bus. Her vanity is a small area but it is perfect for her.
