Dolly Parton gives 'em a rest

Dolly Parton has long been willing to joke about her breasts being part of her distinguishing characteristics, but the country music icon says they are a pain in her back.

Parton, 62, said Monday she would postpone her North American tour after doctors told her to take it easy for six to eight weeks to rest her sore back.

"Hey, you try wagging these puppies around a while and see if you don't have back problems," the folksy singer-songwriter said in a statement.

The tour was due to begin Feb. 28 in Minneapolis. Now she hopes to hit the road in late April.
