Dolly Parton - Dolly Parton Takes On The Als Ice Bucket Challenge

Country star Dolly Parton has become the latest star to take the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge after pal Kenny Rogers nominated her for the chilly charity task.

The Jolene singer filmed herself bracing for a dousing, and then challenged Rogers to donate more to the ALS Association for "the wet T-shirt contest".

Parton said, "Kenny said, 'You'll never do it with your false hair, your false eyelashes, and your false nails'. Kenny, you'd be surprised at what I do with my falsies for a good cause and a good laugh."

She then took the plunge at her Tennessee home, adding, "Although, I didn't challenge anyone, I do challenge everybody to make a generous donation like I did!"

Parton joins an army of celebrities who have taken the plunge to raise cash and awareness for the ALS Association.
