Dolly Parton took to the Pyramid Stage on day three of this year’s Glastonbury festival.
The country singer has drawn a huge crowd for her debut Glastonbury set, performing some of her biggest hits as thousands of fans chanted her name.
The audience was larger than that for Friday and Saturday’s headliners, Arcade Fire and Metallica.
Dolly Parton told the audience: “I’ve been waitin’ a long time for this.”
She sang tracks including Why D’You Come In Here Lookin’ Like That?, 9 to 5, Jolene and Coat of Many Colors.
Dolly Parton said: “I’m just glad you came to see me.”
She also performed a song about the mud that she wrote in the early hours of Sunday morning, which included the lyrics: “Mud, mud, mud, mud/Up to our bums in all this crud.”
Dolly Parton, 68, wooed the crowd with lots of classics and her encore, I Will Always Love You.
The singer played for about an hour on the Pyramid Stage.
“I grew up in the country, so this mud ain’t nothing new to me – and it ain’t nothing to you either,” she said.
Before her show, Dolly Parton was presented with a special award in recognition of selling more than 100 million records worldwide. The singer said she would hang it in her Dollywood Museum in Tennessee.
