Dolly Parton Crowd 'Biggest Ever' Claims Glastonbury's Emily Eavis
Glastonbury Festival organiser Emily Eavis has hailed Dolly Parton's appearance at the event as a success, claiming that she brought the biggest audience the festival has ever seen, NME reports.

Parton performed at Worthy Farm on Sunday (June 29) and played a set filled with hits, including "Jolene" and "9 to 5" as well as a specially written rap about the muddy conditions.

"Oh, Dolly was the biggest crowd I've ever seen here," Eavis said in a QA on the official Glastonbury website. "She is just a truly amazing live performer.

"Her voice was incredible. And she wrote that song about mud in the morning before the show! I don't think you can beat that performance as a perfect moment here at Glastonbury."

However, Eavis did not comment on speculation that Parton mimed during her set; a claim which has subsequently been denied by the singer.
