Dolly herself reposted an Instagram post from Funko on her Insta stories. Funko wrote, “Striking a heartfelt chord with her fans worldwide, Dolly Parton inspires happiness and goodwill towards all. Keep her songs and words close with POP! Rocks Dolly Parton. Including a Funko.com exclusive! Click the link in our bio! #Funko #FunkoPOP @dollyparton.”
The post from Funko was liked half a million times with many comments from fans, including one who wrote, “I’ve never needed something more in my entire existence than this.” Another fan commented, “I’ve been waiting for a @dollyparton funko.”
Last week (1/4), Dionne Warwick announced on The Tameron Hall Show that she and Parton are doing a duet together. Warwick said, “Well, she sent me a song that she wanted me to record, and I said, ‘Okay, sounds like a deal.’ She’s such a sweetheart; I know her, and she sent me another song, the one we’re gonna be doing as a duet.” She added, “It’s a gospel song called ‘Peace Like a River.’ She wrote it. And I am very excited about this. I really am. I’ve done so many duets over the years. But this one’s gonna be very special, it is.”
