Back in August of 2015, Gayle King of CBS This Morning interviewed country singer Mickey Guyton. Guyton talked about her idol being the legendary, Dolly Parton, saying that she’d fall right out of her chair if Parton showed up right now.
King asked her what about Parton she loves so much, and as Guyton put it, “I just love her, and she’s such a bad you-know-what, even now.” We agree!
Guyton had yet to meet her country music idol, though, and King decided to help her out with that, leading to one epic surprise. Back in Aril of this year, King spoke with Parton about setting up the surprise for Guyton, and Parton was all in.
To set it all in motion, King called up Guyton and told her that they were in town doing a story on the Grand Ole Opry and wanted to meet up with her to see how she was. As the video shows, as King and Guyton are just casually talking backstage, Parton walks out and a shocked Guyton starts screaming.
Parton is so sweet with Guyton, and when Guyton expresses her love for her, Dolly responds warmly, “Well, that touches me deep, and I’m just happy I’ve been an inspiration of some sort to you. And that means so much to me, really.”
Both women ended up in tears, and it’s safe to say, that Guyton had one of the best days of her life!
