    Statues of celebrities? Not a fan of the idea. Statues of political leaders? Definitely not interested.

    These people have nothing to do with me (even if I happen to like their work).

    How about a statue of a nurse, or a food kitchen volunteer. Unsung heroes. People that change the world around them, who are completely unknown.

    F celebrities. They really don't need any more praise and adulation from us. They get compensated handsomely for their work. They don't need any friggin statues.

    I think it's just a matter of time until there are even more tributes to her in Tennessee, and she deserves it.

    She has been an inspiration for many women as an example of a strong and successful woman, both music as well as acting.

    And she has written some great country tunes....

    "I Will Always Love You" made famous by Whitney Houston....
    "Jolene" and "Coat of Many Colors".....just great tunes....

    She should get a statue just for being able to play the guitar with those fingernails....great lady.

    She may have stayed away from politics, but she has also stood up for decency.

    She's classy and one of the few celebs that I think everyone generally likes.

    I'm sorry I've never really loved her music because from everything I hear, she's an outstanding human being.
    I'd find all the jokes about her breasts to be in poor taste if she wasn't the one who made the most jokes about them. She has a sense of humour.

    She deserves it, a very classy and charitable woman not to mention a talented singer/song writer.

    I love her. But they could spend the money fixing our rode's. Or helping the poor and hungry because of Covid. Or fix our bridges. :thumbd:
