Visitors to the My People Senior Activity Center, in Sevierville, Tennessee received quite the shock on Monday when the one-and-only Dolly Parton stopped in for a surprise visit.

According to The Knoxville News Sentinel, Parton was there for a dedication ceremony to give the facility its new name, the My People Senior Activity Center, in honor of her parents, Robert and Avie Lee Parton.

The 72-year-old country music icon joked with visitors about her age, popping in on a knitting class, and even joined in for an exercise class—sky-high stilettos and all.  

It was fun watching our unsuspecting seniors exercise with Dolly Parton today!!!! Loved the smiles!!!

"I am so excited to be part of this today. Of course, you know I'm a senior too. When I was over in Sevier County High School, I couldn't wait to be a senior, and now that I'm in my second childhood, I'm a senior again," Parton told the assembled crowd of about 100. "Anyways, I saw one of my old boyfriends from high school. He said, 'Dolly, you look like a million dollars.' I said, 'Well, thank you. That's just about how much it's cost to make me look like this.'"
