What about Hoying’s decision? “The only person who liked Hoying’s choice was Dolly PartonJust because she feels like an untouchable goddess…like, that we would never work with,” the 31 year-old shares about the country star, who won a Grammy with her for their “Jolene” collaboration. “That was an amazing experience. She was professional and fun, as well as sweet and warm. She didn’t even act like a famous person sometimes acts — not at all for how legendary she is.”
