LONDON (AP) -- Dolly Parton has won over legions of hard rock fans at England's Glastonbury Festival, one of the biggest events on the summer calendar.

The country legend's first ever performance at the traditionally muddy festival at Worthy Farm in southwest England.

She played many of her hits to a crowd estimated at 150,000 people.

Parton told the crowd at the Sunday show that she had been waiting her entire lifetime for a chance to perform at Glastonbury. She penned and performed a special song about mud to mark the occasion even though the day proved mostly sunny and fair.

The Rolling Stones, Jay-Z, James Brown and other influential bands have performed there over the years.
