Most of the world had their eyes glued to World Cup matches yesterday. But, much of England had its attention on Dolly Parton. The country legend performed at Glastonbury Festival for the first time. She even wrote a special song for it. Oh, and that song was a rap called "Worthy Farm Mud."

Parton's performance at the Pyramid Stage drew the biggest crowd so far at the music festival. Her band featured a special guest, Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora. But, most remarkable was her new song. "Before I got here they told us that you were famous for the mud," she explained to the crowd. "When we arrived at 5 a.m. this morning, I looked down and saw these people and they were knee deep in the mud, and I thought, 'Well, I'll write a song about it.'" And, here you thought "Jolene" would be the show's biggest crowd-pleaser. (NME)
