Well Hello Dolly

This month in 1978 Dolly Parton became the first country singer to pose for Playboy. She appeared on the cover of the October issue wearing a Playboy bunny outfit (complete with ears) but had refused to pose nude for the magazine. She did the photo shoot for a different kind of exposure as she was looking to break through to a wider audience. It worked, as two years later she starred in the movie 9 To 5 and scored a number 1 USA Hot 100 hit with the title song. As for why she didn’t “get naked,” Dolly said, “I’m not that brave, nor do I look that good.”
