This year's Newport Folk Festival, taking place in Newport, RI, highlights women in the industry for sure. The guest of honor at the 2019 festival was none other than country icon Dolly Parton. Groups and artists at the festival consist of\u00a0Amanda Shires,\u00a0Maren Morris,\u00a0Natalie Hemby, and\u00a0Brandi Carlile,\u00a0country music group\u00a0the Highwomen.\r\n\r\nWhen Dolly Parton was introduced to the crowd, she said in classic Parton style, \u201cMe and Rhode Island have a lot in common. We\u2019re little, but we\u2019re loud, and we do big things!\u201d\r\nThe Newport Folk Festival was full of anecdotes and stunning renditions\r\n\r\n\r\nAccompanying Parton was the incredible Linda Perry, who introduced Parton as an "incomparable unicorn legend." Perry helps Parton lead into her 1991 ballad, \u201cEagle When She Flies.\u201d Following the tune, the band begins to play \u201cJust Because I\u2019m a Woman\u201d after an anecdote from Parton. She's a great storyteller!\r\n\r\nThe story leading into "Just Because I'm a Woman" comes after Parton recalls her awkward wedding night with husband, Carl Dean. \u201cWhen you boys want to get married, you want us women to be pure as snow\u2026 and sometimes we\u2019re not!\u201d\r\n\r\n\r\nParton reveals the real meaning behind one of her biggest hits\r\nParton and singer Brandi Carlile take the stage together for a rendition of the 1974 hit "I Will Always Love You." Following that, Parton tells a story about the real woman behind her hit song "Jolene," which she sang joined by the Highwomen. There were multiple reasons behind the hit, but Parton does confirm that there was a redheaded bank teller who would often flirt with her husband, Carl.\r\n\r\n\u201cI told him, \u2018I know you work in asphalt ,\u201d said Parton. \u201cBut it\u2019ll be\u00a0your\u00a0ass and\u00a0your fault\u2019 if I leave!\u201d Parton tells the audience in a story.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIt was truly a setlist to remember, and Parton was easily the star of the show for the Newport Folk Festival.
