Dolly Parton Moved Stephen Colbert To Tears By Singing To Him On His Show

Pretty much everyone in the world is extremely stressed right now, and when we're stressed, sometimes it doesn't take much to move us to tears, whether they're tears of sadness or tears of pure emotion.

Late night host Stephen Colbert is clearly not immune to this problem as his latest interview with Dolly Parton has proved.

Dolly Parton is one of our biggest living legends.

She's a singer, she's a songwriter, she's an actress, she's hilarious, she's charitable — there's not much she can't do and basically no reason not to love her.

It makes sense then that Stephen Colbert got a little choked up when she sang 'Bury Me Beneath The Willow' on his show recently.

As soon as Dolly started singing, Stephen said he got "goosebumps" which turned into full on tears as she continued.

"I better hush before you cry yourself to death and we can't finish the show," Dolly joked after she noticed Stephen had teared up.

"Like a lot of Americans, I'm under a lot of stress right now, Dolly! You got under my tripwire right there," Stephen responded. "That was pretty beautiful."

"We used to sing when momma would sing. Momma would cry, we'd cry... Those old songs were just amazing,"
