Responding to a bill from Tennessee state legislators proposing to erect a statue in her honor at the state capitol, country music legend Dolly Parton said she that while she appreciates the intent, doesn’t think it would be appropriate.

In a post to Twitter this Thursday, Parton asked lawmakers to “remove the bill from any and all consideration.”

“In the meantime, I’ll continue to try to do good work to make this great state proud,” she added.

This isn’t the first time Parton has turned down top honors. Parton twice declined a Presidential Medal of Freedom from the Trump administration and said she isn’t sure if she’d accept the honor from President Biden.
