Dolly Parton will go on tour this coming June.

For the first time in 25 years, country music queen Dolly Parton will hit the road on a major North American tour. The “Coat of Many Colors” singer is an old pro at the music business and has her tricks for going on the road and keeping homesickness at bay.

Parton told CMT that she likes to cook familiar meals before going on the road.

“I cook stuff before I leave home. I put it in the freezers and stuff, like home cookin’. We always have good caterers too, but there’s just that stuff that if you’re away from home you don’t feel homesick if you can have the things you’re used to” Parton said.

We all know that the 70-year old entertainer still looks absolutely amazing on stage, so what’s her secret?

“I don’t eat as much of it as I used to. I try to watch it when I’m traveling for my stage clothes, if nothing else,” Parton says.

“I try to do kind of low carb through the week and splurge when I get a minute.”

We wonder what Dolly Parton splurges on? That will remain a secret for now!
