You can live the life of country royalty.
According to Dollywood officials, Parton wrote “9 to 5: The Musical” and “Backwoods Barbie” albums, along with books, television shows and movies while on the road in the Prevost bus as it traveled about 360,000 miles throughout North America over its 13 years of use.
Parton would stay in the bus instead of booking hotel rooms while on tour because, according to a news release from the resort, “she preferred to have her own space, food and belongings.”
“I have homes all over the United States, but my favorite place is the bus because that way I can just feel those wheels rolling; I’m a true gypsy at heart,” Parton said.
For $10,000, two people can book two nights in Suite 1986.
“(I) decided to retire it because I wasn’t touring that much anymore and it just was sitting there,” Parton said, according to Knox News. “And I thought this could be put to really good use.”
The newspaper called the bus’ interior colorful and cozy — it’s stuffed with Dolly’s belongings, including a sparkly guitar and a wig cabinet.
The bedroom includes fuzzy pink pillows, other hot pink accessories and a pink-and-purple vanity chair at her makeup table, the “Today” show reported.
The closets also have some of Parton’s clothing and accessories she has worn over the years.
