Dolly Parton Honored by the FBI for Tennessee Wildfire Relief Efforts

Dolly Parton was just recognized by the FBI for her efforts to provide support to families affected by the 2016 Tennessee wildfires.

Parton was awarded the Community Leadership Award by FBI Director Christopher Wray at a ceremony in Washington Friday.

"After the Gatlinburg wildfires, Sevier County native Dolly Parton decided to help her hometown neighbors who had lost everything," the FBI said on its website. "Parton and the Dollywood Foundation provided $10,000 to each of 900 families. The donations brought renewed hope to a community devastated by the worst natural disaster in Tennessee history."

Dolly wasn't there to accept her award in person, but she did send in a video message. Check it out below!
