Dolly Parton has an unusual fan story to beat all others. The story dates back to the 1970s, but it’s one Dolly — and anyone who hears it — will never forget. She told tasteofcountry.com,

“There are all kinds of things that people ask me to do but I tell this story and it’s a true story but freaky. Years ago when I first started being a big star I had fans that were fanatical. It was when ‘Jolene’ was a big hit. We came home one day and there was a baby in a box at our gate with a note in it. The note said, ‘My name is Jolene, my momma has left me here and she wants you to have me.’ Of course, we all freaked out!”

She says they called Human Services right away, and took care of the baby until the agency arrived. Dolly said,

“We never did know or hear anything about it. I knew nothing else. What do you do in a situation like that? There are some loony people in this world! Can you imagine yourself in that situation? It wasn’t like it was a kitten or a puppy dog. It was a baby named Jolene!”
