Country music queen Dolly Parton recorded a secret song and locked it in a time capsule for fans to hear in 2045.
The “9TB 5” performer sealed the track in a special box, created from chestnut wood by her uncle Bill, at Dollywood’s DreamMore Resort, the Tennessee retreat she launched in 2015.
Those in charge of the place have received specific instructions not to open it before the 30th anniversary of the opening of the place.
In her book, “Songteller: My Life in Lyrics,” published last year, Dolly Parton revealed that marketing executives had the unique idea of not playing the song, and she was intrigued.
“It will be a song that will never be heard for 30 years from the time we opened the station. They said, “You will be long dead.” I replied, “Maybe not. I’ll be 99. I’ve seen people live longer than that,” she said.
The star, who turns 75 on January 19, included a CD player in the vault to allow future generations to listen to the recording, but admitted that it was difficult to leave a new unreleased song for so long. long without touching it.
“It’s like burying one of my kids, putting it in ice or whatever, and I won’t be around to watch it come back to life.” It’s just that it burns me inside, but I have to leave it in there. I hope it works and the CD player isn’t rotten by then, ”she joked.
“Either way, it’s kinda weird or weird that they ask me to write this mystery song. I don’t know if I want to live to be 100 or not. But we never know. I could, and if I do, I will be present at this opening, ”she concluded.
