Country legend Dolly Parton has to rethink her set lists when she performs in Las Vegas, Nevada, because promoters there don't want her songs about poverty and heartbreak to upset gamblers.

The JOLENE singer recalls one night when she was asked not to perform her hit Me + LITTLE ANDY, about the death of a girl and her puppy, because club bosses feared fans would be so upset they wouldn't gamble after the show.

She says, "It's a sad-a*s song... I used to do that song onstage, then I got asked one time in Vegas if I could please not.

"The casino wanted the audience to drink more and lose more money - they didn't want to bring 'em down (and) me singing about some little kid whose daddy's a drunkard, it's just too much."
