    Does it count if Princess Gray Beaver changed the lyrics to "Lying 9 to 5. What a way to make a living"?

    Dolly Parton Goes After Elizabeth Warren for Unauthorized Use of Her Music, Warren Campaign Silent

    Published March 11, 2019 at 11:35pm

    Singer Dolly Parton did not give Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts permission to use her hit “9 to 5” during the launch of the candidate’s presidential bid or subsequent stops on the campaign trail. Parton is now making her displeasure known.

    When Warren took to the stage in her hometown of Lawrence last month, she did so to the catchy ditty from the 1980 movie of the same name. The song “9 to 5” reached No. 1 on the Billboard charts almost 40 years ago.

    Warren apparently chose the song to burnish her image as a candidate for the working person.

    The senator used it again during a campaign event on Friday in New York City, The Associated Press reported.

    Parton’s manager Danny Nozell told the AP via email, “We did not approve the request (to use the song), and we do not approve requests like this of (a) political nature.”

    I have a lot of respect for Dolly. She rose from nothing to become a huge star and incredibly wealthy - and she never lost her humility or common touch or connection with her roots. She has never once showed any shame for her humble beginnings and she has never once shown anything but compassion for those who are less fortunate.

    She has demonstrated that she is a shrewd and clever businesswoman. I've seen her handle the most sarcastic and pointed and demeaning questions with confidence and grace. She is - to me - a national treasure.

    But I wouldn't mess with her.

    I Bet I got both of yall beat. I seen her in person at the Strawberry Festival in Greenville, Ky singing off the back of a flatbed truck parked in the street next to the courthouse..:D Wife seems to think it was in 1963 I don't remember the year. But wife said Dolly was 16 or 17 years old at the time she thinks.
