Dolly Parton couldn’t pass up a dare from Kenny Rogers to take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

In a video on YouTube, Parton says, “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 all I do with my falses; for a good cause and a good laugh.”

Her nieces, Rebecca and Hannah, did the honors of dousing Parton with two buckets of ice water. At one point during the video, as Parton is removing her earrings and scarf, the cameraman says, “You gotta take off your shoes!” Parton, replies ... in true Dolly fashion ... laughing, “Oh, they’re plastic! So’s the rest of me, but that’s beside the point!”

According to a press release, Parton did the ice bucket challenge in her Nashville home where she is spending some down time after her “Blue Smoke World Tour.”
