Dolly Parton walked out of the hospital in Los Angeles a few months ago to film the video for her collaboration with Don Henley, “When I Stop Dreaming.” During a keynote address at the Americana Music Festival in Nashville Thursday, Don says Dolly got up out of the hospital bed to shoot the clip. She told him, “I’ve got a medical issue, but I’m gonna be there.”
Don says he guesses Dolly went back to the hospital after shooting the video. He goes on to say Dolly thanked everyone on set before leaving.
According to Dolly’s rep, she’s now in great health. Look for her to make several media appearances in the coming weeks to promote the NBC TV movie based on her childhood, Coat of Many Colors, premiering December 10.
“When I Stop Dreaming” is included on Don’s new album, Cass County, due out September 25.
