Yesterday at Newport Folk Festival, Dolly Parton made a surprise appearance during the Brandi Carlile and Highwomen set. She goes on to tell the crowd that she’s a big fan of Carlile and she came out to give them some help. What a charmer, what stage presence… an absolute pro.

Place went bonkers when she hit the stage. Check it out below…
