Dolly Parton Auditions Guys “Lookin’” for a Big Break

In 1989, Dolly Parton found success on both sides of the audition table. That year, she landed a memorable role as the sweet beautician Truvy Jones in Steel Magnolias, one of the most quotable movies of that era. (“When it comes to pain and suffering, she’s right up there with Elizabeth Taylor.”) But when it came to finding a leading man for this amusing music video, she switched seats. Can you imagine walking into a casting call and seeing Dolly Parton smiling back at you? Even with all those guys awaiting their big break, she’s still the star attraction.

Enjoy the video for the No. 1 hit, “Why’d You Come in Here Lookin’ Like That.”
