PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (AP) -- Country music legend Dolly Parton has another accomplishment to add to her list: she's a Girl Scout.
The 60-year-old Parton was given the honor last night before one-thousand Girl Scouts at her Dollywood theme park in Tennessee.
Parton says while she was never a Girl Scout as a child, she always wanted to be. This honor allows her to "live out a dream" and be part of a group that stands for many of the same values she does.
She accepted a lifetime membership pin and led the audience in the Girl Scout Promise. Then she honored 28 girls who received the Gold Award, the highest honor in Girl Scouts.
A scout leader says "Dolly realizes the importance of a program that helps girls grow into young women of courage and confidence."
