Dolly Parton and guests attend red carpet premiere of her new Heartstrings series

"I’ve been very blessed to have all these wonderful things going on in my life,” Dolly said.

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. — If you're excited about Dolly Parton's Heartstrings premiere, you're in luck! 

Netflix allowed 500 lucky guests to attend the red carpet during Dolly Parton's Heartstrings Premiere at Dollywood Tuesday evening. Even if you couldn't attend, you can watch the red carpet event below:

Dolly took some time on the red carpet to talk about her ever-busy life, between her new song 'Faith,' podcast, Netflix series, shows and more.

“Ooh, that’s a lot! How did I do all that?! Actually, there is a lot going on. I’ve been very blessed to have all these wonderful things going on in my life,” she said. “I think I’m going to need a good break at the end of the year, I’m going to have a good holiday break… I’m going to sleep from Thanksgiving until Christmas, I think.”

Dolly said she thinks it's more important than ever these days to involve herself in all things inspirational and uplifting. 

“I just think I want to do more things that are uplifting. I think there’s just so much dirt and mudslinging around these days," she said. "I just want to do something to make us all feel a little better, and I am an entertainer and I don’t get all involved in all the politics and all that stuff. I just write my feelings in songs, and really looking for something to uplift people and glorify God.”

Dolly also took a moment to talk about celebrating 50 years at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville earlier this month with a special performance.

“It was great, it was very emotional to me. It brought back a lot of memories, and I just feel proud to be still around,“ she said..
