Dolly Parton just keeps on going. The legendary country singer turned 74 years old on Sunday, appearing to have her birthday celebrated by one major celebrity face.
Actress Reese Witherspoon revealed that her dream had come true this weekend as Dolly personally joined her for a singalong – the two ladies appeared on the “Big Little Lies” star’s Instagram. It looked like Reese was having the time of her life, and Dolly wasn’t looking too shabby for someone who’ll be blowing out 75 candles on the cake this time next year.
Reese’s video brought color, music, and a real heart-warming feel as “The Morning Show” star was joined by Dolly. The clip was from Reese’s “Shine On With Reese” Netflix show.
Dolly was seen holding a guitar and belting out her “Coat of Many Colors” hit as Reese joined in – the actress mostly listened, though.
Dolly was looking absolutely sensational. The buxom blonde was wearing a bold red top with ruffled shoulder details, plus a comfy pair of jeans matching a chunky bead necklace. With her colorful and patterned guitar, giant bouffant hair, and a fingerless glove finish from the top’s sleeves, this was one eye-catching look.
