Dolly Parton's Glastonbury nerves

Dolly Parton has admitted feeling a little trepidation about playing at Glastonbury.

The singer, 68, has been booked to play the so-called Legend slot on the festival's Sunday afternoon this year.

She said that she hoped to bring some sun, as well as her distinctive voice, to the notoriously rain-soaked festival.

"I will try to bring some Nashville weather with me. I can't wait, though," she said.

"I've played to that many people before - years ago with Linda Ronstadt and the Eagles - but never something as big as Glastonbury. And never on my own."

Dolly, whose new album, Blue Smoke, is released in the UK this month, added: "I think I will be a little bit scared. Well maybe not scared, but definitely nervous.

"But whatever the weather, or if I'm nervous, we're going to put on the best show. No matter what."

:: Blue Smoke is released on May 12. Dolly Parton begins her UK tour on June 8.
