NEW YORK — The Today Show production crew sported blonde wigs when Dolly Parton visited Studio 1A
She spoke with hosts Hota Kotb and Savannah Guthrie about her career, growing up on TV and her upcoming Netflix series, Heartstrings. At one point during the interview, Parton discussed how she always hears a rhythm, even in a silent room.
She then demonstrated how she can make a rhythm using her nails, tapping them together to the beat of "9 to 5."
After that, Kotb asked how Parton felt leaving home and heading to Nashville to pursue a music career. Parton said that she was lucky for being put on as a writer on TV shows to start out her career.
"I had to fight for it, and I still do fight for it, but I just felt like it was my destiny," Parton said during the interview.

Her new show, Heartstrings, will run on Netflix. It features ten vignettes based on Dolly Parton's songs. It premieres on Nov. 22.
"I've always thought my songs told stories," Parton said during the interview. "Ever since I was young, I thought I would love to see my songs on the screen as movies."
