Dolly Parton (b. 1946) is an American singer, songwriter, author and actress. She also operates the Dollywood theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Parton tells this story about a discussion she had with her manager Sandy Gallin in her 1994 biography. Sandy said to her, "How can Kermit sing with a man's hand up his ass?!" To which Parton replied, "That's nothing; I did that for seven years on The Porter Wagoner Show!"
Kermit and Dolly sang "Islands in the Stream" on Good Morning America, November 27, 2012.
