Associate professor Lynn Sacco is teaching a history class at UT, but this class isn’t about breaking down maps or focusing on revolutions. It’s about country music superstar Dolly Parton.

WVLT-TV Local 8 Now noted that it’s not a Dolly Parton appreciation class, but a special honors class. Students must interview to get in.

“I wanted to give them someone they thought they knew, but they really don’t know that much about her,” Sacco explained.

UT’s Daily Beacon also featured the story.
