Dolly is originally from Tennessee but she later moved to New York City in early 60s or 70s to fulfill her dream of being a country musician. She came to NYC with her friend Judy Lana and at the starting phase they literally knew nothing about New York. They decided to go around the city. They went to a hotel and booked one room for both of them because they had no money. After that they went to roam the City and when they returned to the hotel, Dolly's and her friend's luggage were thrown out and the hotel people didn't let them in. Dolly and Jude both were in cheap dress up that made the hotel people think that they were some hookers. They had nowhere to go so they requested hotel staff to let them keep their luggage in the lobby. After that they left their bag there and went down to the stress where they got followed by a man. Dolly was done with the man following her so she pulled out the gun she was carrying on her purse and threatened that man to not touch her or follow them. Dolly's friend Jade thought it was a joke and she started laughing which made the man laugh too and he also took it as a joke. That was the her first experience in her New York City at her beginning days. She then talked about her being down to earth. She has earn lots of money and success through her music career and despite being such a big star, Dolly is very down to earth.
