Country music legend Dolly Parton wants to launch her own outdoor music event after feeling inspired by Britain’s iconic Glastonbury Festival.

The 68-year-old wowed fans with her performance at the musical showpiece on Sunday, with an afternoon set that drew the biggest ever crowd in front of the main stage.

The “Jolene” hitmaker was on such a high after her triumphant show, she spoke to the event’s organizer Michael Eavis about the possibility of starting a festival at her Dollywood theme park in Tennessee.

She tells British newspaper The Sun, “I have a lotta land up near east Tennessee and we do a lot of festivals through my Dollywood company.

“I’ve often thought I might start my own festival in Tennessee. Maybe I’ll get good pointers from this one. I think I’m going to do that – Michael can give me some tips. Why wouldn’t I want something amazing like this?”
