While Dolly is asked to have a big role in many award shows, the singer said she looks at every event very carefully.
“I decide what’s going on at the time. And if I’m able actually to do it, physically, and if there’s things going on in my life…but this time you really try to connect those things,” she told Variety. “Everything’s about the business, as you know. And of course I have a new book, Run Rose Run, out with James Patterson, and I have written a soundtrack for it, and the book is coming out on the 7th and the album was out on the 4th, so we’re promoting that.”
And with the show streaming on Amazon Prime Video for the first time, Dolly realizes there are no commercial breaks. Fortunately, she has a little help with co-hosts Jimmie Allen and Gabby Barrett.
