Dolly Parton isn’t afraid of adventure — she’s written books, starred in films, opened her own theme park and rarely stops trying new things — but she’s not fearless. The country music icon reveals on a podcast that she’s actually afraid of flying.

“I’ll tell everyone, I don’t care,” Parton admits in the podcast. “I’m not ashamed of it. I don’t like to fly.”

Hilariously, she adds: “I’m like my daddy. I don’t want to go no higher up than pulling corn and no lower down than pickin’ taters.”

Parton says that in addition to just not liking the idea of being so high, she actually suffers from motion sickness and doesn’t do well with in-flight turbulence.
