"She was small in stature but even the tallest looked up to her," Parton wrote in a Sept. 19 Tweet. "Her voice was soft but her message rang loud and clear and will echo forever. Thank you, RBG. Rest In Peace. Respectfully, Dolly Parton."
Other country artists to speak out following Ginsburg's death include Maren Morris, who called Ginsburg "the O.G. of law and order," and Morris' fellow Highwoman Brandi Carlile, who hopes for "the final glimmer of this brilliant light (to) be a supernova" that delivers "the final fatal blow" to Donald Trump's presidency.
In addition, Nashville star Trisha Yearwood offered condolences with a series of Tweets.
Tim McGraw also posted about Ginsburg's legacy as a champion of gender equality.
"Rest in power, RBG," he wrote. "Thankful for your service, wisdom and devotion to justice."

In 1993, Ginsburg became just the second woman to serve on the Supreme Court after being nominated by President Bill Clinton. She was also the first Jewish justice to serve since the 1969 resignation of Abe Fortas.
Praise from outside of country music circles came from such celebrities as Felicity Jones, star of the 2018 Ginsburg biopic On the Basis of Sex.
"She will be missed not only as a beacon of light in these difficult times but for her razor-sharp wit and extraordinary humanity," Jones said in a statement. "She taught us all so much."
