Dolly Parton Plans A Porter Wagoner Tribute
Now Parton wants to salute Wagoner's career by staging a one off TV special, which will feature all things related to the colorful country star. According to CMT.com, Parton plans to dress her entire band in colorful 'Wagonmaster' costumes, complete with rhinestones and wagon wheel and cactus designs. And she's roping in her longtime assistant Don Warden, who once played steel guitar for Wagoner, and regulars from her late pal's hit TV show including fiddler Mac Magaha, banjo pioneer Buck Trent and funnyman Speck Rhodes.
Parton wrote hit ballad I Will Always Love You as a tribute to Wagoner, while he was still alive, and she's expected to perform a heartbreaking rendition of that to close the show.
Wagoner passed away at a hospice facility in Nashville, Tennessee last year after a battle with lung cancer. He was 80.
