Dolly Parton Salutes Ruth Bader Ginsburg + More Country Music News
Dolly Parton was among the many who turned to social media to mark the death of longtime Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Friday night.
"She was small in stature but even the tallest looked up to her," Parton writes. "Her voice was soft but her message rang loud and clear and will echo forever. Thank you, RBG. Rest In Peace. Respectfully, Dolly Parton."
No matter your politics, you should salute all that RBG did, for all. I ask myself, What am I doing with my life. Look at all her accomplishments.

In his new book, Willie Nelson reveals the unpleasant moment when he had to tell his second wife, Shirley, that he had fathered a child with another woman.
The 87-year-old country legend says he "tried to play it off as no big deal" when Shirley saw a bill from a hospital in Houston. He told her he'd visited the hospital for something minor, but she "wasn't buying that for one simple reason:
The bill said the charges were for the birth of a baby girl, Paula Carlene, born to a Mrs. Connie Nelson," he writes in a new memoir, Me and Sister Bobbie: True Tales of the Family Band, which he co-wrote with his sister and longtime musical collaborator, Bobbie Nelson (quote via People).
Statistics from the CDC show that one out of every eight women deals with postpartum depression. And this year, Maren Morris became one of them.
In a new interview with CBS This Morning, Maren says that, thankfully, she seems to be on the other side of the depression now, nearly six months since the birth of her son Hayes.
"I'm kind of coming through the tunnel now,” Morris said in an interview that aired on Monday (Sept. 14). “I feel back to normal. Fortunately, I was able to do phone therapy during the pandemic. ... And [I have] people that love me around me that are like, 'Hey, if you're drowning right now, there's help."
"You're trying to become a new mother and good parent and do everything right and you just feel like you suck at every level," Morris added, admitting that she felt like she was "drowning" during the worst parts of her battle with postpartum depression.
Add that to the fact that Morris was also watching as her 2020 touring plans get delayed due to the spread of the virus.
"And then the one thing I've always felt like I have a handle on is my music," she continued. "And to not be able to tour and have to furlough my band and crew, it was just a lot."
