NASHVILLE, Tennessee (AP) — Dolly Parton says she has always enjoyed working with other artists on tour.

But she says it’s nice to know she can sell out a venue overseas with just her name on the marquee. She says back in the ’70s, she used to tour overseas as part of what she calls “package shows” — with other acts.

But she says eventually her management convinced her that she could sell out as a solo act. So she did — and she loved it.

She says fans overseas make her feel more special because she doesn’t get out of the country as often.

So, Dolly says, when she does tour overseas she feels like she is “kinda like a rock star.”

These days, Parton is making the rounds in New Zealand and Australia — and will also perform in the U.K., Germany, Denmark, Norway and Sweden this summer.
