Dolly Parton’s Black Lives Matter statement which she made concerning the recent U.S. protests sparked by the death of George Floyd, is now a mural in Nashville

 

The legendary American singer, 74, made headlines when she expressed her support for Black Lives Matter movement in an interview with Billboard last month. 

 

She said: “I understand people having to make themselves known and felt and seen, and of course Black lives matter. Do we think our little white a**es are the only ones that matter? No!” 

 

Parton’s remarks caught the attention of artist Kim Radford who had to make something special out it.

The Nashville-based muralist said she was already crafting a work of Parton on the side of The 5 Spot music venue when she stumbled on the statement in an article. 

 

 “I looked at her quote in particular and it was so sassy and a sensitive comment about something’s [sic] that got a lot of friction in the air right now,”Radford told a local reporter.

 

 “And she just treated it just like Dolly does: lovingly. And it was just perfect.” Radford then incorporated the quote into her project. 

 

The mural at The 5 Spot music venue features a bright-smiled Parton and her signature curly blonde hair. She is also surrounded by flowers and sparkles with her comment boldly displayed.

Radford admits that it all was a “happy coincidence” and she just couldn’t help but add more of Parton’s essence into the mural. “I wanted it to be a real display of an icon, [in a] fun, bright, artistic way,” she says. 

 

“It’s a representation of an icon that Americans and really people across the globe are really proud to know and love her music.” 

 

According to Radford, the mural has become a popular spot for tourists and selfie lovers and is something for her and others in the community to simply take pride in.
