“I got them to cover scars or things,” Parton said. “If I have to get a scar for any reason, I never can kind of get rid of that purple look. So I thought, ‘Well, I’m going to kind of decorate these with some flowers or little butterflies or whatever.'”
The interview is part of the ABC News special, “Dolly Parton: Here She Comes Again!,” which airs Tuesday night.

“Heartstrings,” an eight-episode Netflix anthology of stories based on her music, premieres on the streaming service on November 22.
