Dolly Parton may be "tired" and "sore" after her car crash this week, but the legend is planning to be good as new next summer.
The 67-year-old country singer is planning to head to Europe as part of her Blue Smoke World Tour in June and July.
The songstress is slated to visit England, Ireland, Scotland, Denmark, Germany, Norway and Sweden on her trek.
“Every time I come to Europe I’m just as excited as I was my very first time, which was many, many years ago," Parton said in a statement. "I love that part of the world and I especially love the fans. We always have such a good time, and I’ve put together a lot of things for this show that I think the fans will love. We had not planned to come back so soon, but we got so much fanmail and such a great reaction that I thought ‘Well, why not. If they’re having a good time and we always do, let’s just do it.'"
And an itinerary was born. Parton's scheduled to begin the European leg of her tour, which is in support of her forthcoming album, "Blue Smoke," in Liverpool, England on June 8 before winding down in Stockholm, Sweden, on July 11. She'll also stop by the O2 arena in London on June 27.
Parton's announcement comes a few days after a Nashville traffic crash that involved the singer and a friend. "I was in a fender bender this morning, here in Nashville," Parton tweeted on Monday. "But I am all good. Just a little tired and sore, resting at home."
