During an interview with DJ Ken Bruce on Greatest Hits Radio, Parton spoke about the end of her touring days, stating, “I think those days are pretty much behind me.

When asked if she would give up music altogether, Parton said she would “never retire.”
The “Jolene” singer then said that she “hopefully one day would drop dead on stage in the middle of a song,” adding, “So I hope it continues.” I don’t have much of a choice there, but in the In the meantime I will make hay while the sun is shining.”
Parton said she hopes one day to produce a television series about her life that is about “things that people haven’t seen or heard about me and where I come from and how I’ve become and who I am.” .
She also said she wants to launch her “own makeup line, her own wig line and clothing line.”
In May 2022, the country music star said she would “accept” her win in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame after initially withdrawing the nomination.
Parton withdrew the nomination as she felt she “didn’t deserve that right” as she originally believed “the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is for people in rock music”.
After changing her mind, she told her fans, “I will continue to work hard and try to live up to this honor.”
