Dolly Parton, one of country music's most glamorous icons, is taking off her sky high heels to pose in authentic combat boots for the Boot Campaign…proving that combat boots make a great fashion statement especially when paired with sequin camouflage pants! Hey, I am all for combat boots and prom dresses! Dolly is so fab, and kudos to her for making this fashion move for a good cause.
"So many people, regular folks and celebrities, send out love and sincere thanks to you for keeping us safe and fighting for our freedom. Let me add to that loving list. Thank you from the bottom of my country heart. I will always love you," Dolly Parton said in a statement.
The Boot Campaign is a grassroots initiative started by five Texas women now known as the Boot Girls, who decided to take action after reading retired Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell's book Lone Survivor. It all started back in 2009 when the Boot Girls asked celebrities at the Country for Our Country benefit concert to pose in army combat boots for an online photo gallery used to rally support for returning troops. Shortly after a host of celebrities, politicians and sports figures teamed up with the Boot Girls to put their boots on for the Boot Campaign. The campaign encourages Americans to purchase a pair of army combat boots to wear in support of our troops. Proceeds from the boot sales are donated to partner charities, including the Lone Survivor Foundation.
