Dolly Parton is not Happy With Elizabeth Warren

Dolly Parton has responded to Elizabeth Warren using one of her songs at a campaign event. The singer noted that she does not like her music used for political purposes.

According to Fox News:

When Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., announced her presidential run, she did so underscored by Dolly Parton’s working-class anthem “9 to 5.” The song seemed to sum up the spirit of a candidacy built on giving workers a fairer shake.

The only problem is that the artist didn’t give her permission to use the hit.

Parton’s manager, Danny Nozell, revealed that not only did Warren use the song without permission, but that the singer doesn't ever allow her songs to be involved with any political campaigns.

“We did not approve the request, and we do not approve requests like this of (a) political nature,” Nozell told The Associated Press.


The Parton team did not respond when asked if they would file a complaint against the campaign. It looks like Parton will continue to stay away from politics even as 2020 approaches.
