“Given all that is going on in the world, I don’t think putting me on a pedestal is appropriate at this time,” Parton said in a statement.

Parton thanked the legislature for their consideration of the bill and said she was honored and humbled by their intentions.

Aside from her music, Parton is a lifelong philanthropist. Recently, she gave a million-dollar donation to help develop the Moderna coronavirus vaccine.
