"Smile! It increases your face value," as Dolly Parton tells us in a new video clip posted on social media on October 24. Ah, isn't that the truth? And that quote—along with so many other sayings from the Smoky Mountain Songbird—certainly rings true during these tough times in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

That's why we were so excited to see Parton announce her plans to release more such Dollyisms for her fans to enjoy, sharing the news alongside the playful video clip. "Dollyisms 101. Over the next few months I’ll be sharing some of my favorite (and even a few new) Dollyisms with you! Be sure to share them with your friends who need a little pick-me-up or smile!" she wrote. In turn, her followers responded enthusiastically in the comments section.

"Dolly you are so talented. You’re a brilliant song writer and have the voice of an angel. That laugh you do after performing a song —- always makes me smile. I think that is your signature," offered one fan in effusive praise of the country music great. "Awwwww. [That quote about smiling is] one of my favorites! Thank you for the reminder Dolly!" another chimed in, inspiring us too, to always be mindful to take the time to turn our lips upward.

While Parton hasn't released specifics on how frequently she'll be releasing Dollyisms, and on what specific platforms, we're looking forward to revisiting some of Parton's best wisdom, and picking up some new words to live by along the way.
