There was a Dolly sighting at Dollywood on Thursday.

The Sevier Countian who is known worldwide for her music, movies and TV shows is in East Tennessee wrapping production on her new TV movie, "Coat of Many Colors."

WBIR's Beth Haynes interviewed Parton on Thursday, discussing everything from the new movie to her DreamMore Resort to Dollywood being Tennessee's top spot on Instagram.

Parton is extremely proud of all her accomplishments. But she does not have an Instagram account.

"Nope, but I got a resort and I got a park and I got some other good stuff. But I'm as dumb as a post with all that technology stuff. I'm like a low-tech girl in a high-tech world. But I get by," said Parton.

She's thrilled about the Pride of the Southland Marching Band's halftime tribute to her coming up at Saturday's game against Georgia.

We'll have more on that tribute Friday on Live at 5 at 4.

Dolly's new TV movie "Coat of Many Colors" will be released in December.
