Singer Dolly Parton says she would like to be honoured with a Broadway musical about her life when she dies.

The 70-year-old country music legend has plenty of things left to do on her bucket list, including starting her very own beauty line, and even beyond the grave she has ambitions as she wants her story turned into a show sound tracked by her own songs when passes away, reported Femalefirst.

“I’ve got buckets on both sides. I do someday hope to see my life story on Broadway as a musical. I’d love to have a cosmetic line. As far as a bucket list, I think I do pretty much what I want – just takes a lot of time sometimes.”

The “9 to 5” hitmaker is about to embark on her biggest tour in 25 years and plans on telling stories about her life through her songs and how she grew up in her grandfather’s church.

Asked what her favourite tour traditions are, she said: “I always talk about (the song) ‘Coat of Many Colors’ and my mom. Now that the ‘Coat of Many Colors’ movie did so well, I also wrote a song called ‘Mama’ that I’ll probably sing before I start talking about the home section of the show.

“I’ll be talking about my grandpa and how I was brought up, which means a lot to me. I’ll be doing my gospel segment from the fact that I grew up in my grandpa’s church.”
