"I never knew that girls like Pam Tillis and Tanya Tucker liked my music," she said. "They're so much younger and their music's nothing like mine, but apparently they listened to my records when they were youngsters."
"The thought of it frightens me," she said. "What would I do? Singing has been my whole life. I have no hobbies, and I'm too old to start one now.".
