    Country music songbird, writer, actress, philanthropist and entrepreneur Dolly Parton is easily one of the most recognizable celebrities in the world today, with numerous awards and accolades across the globe. From humble beginnings, hers is truly a rags-to-riches American success story. Talent, drive and a keen business sense have taken this legend far from her country roots, but her heart stayed true to the mountains where she was raised. 
     C.J. Morgan has always been a big fan of Dolly Parton and they were enough alike in looks, sound and personality that it was an easy stretch for her to recreate the living legend for shows and appearances. She has won almost every Dolly look-alike contest she has ever entered and even has the trademark laugh. Her live renditions of Dolly's songs are as heartfelt as the original and she projects the same down-to-earth sense of playful joy and spontaneity evident in interviews with Ms. Parton. 

     From Ms. Parton's home state of Tennessee, as one of the most authentic Dolly impersonator/tribute artists in the business, C.J. is one of the best celebrity impersonators in the country when it comes to improvisational, one-on-one situations such as meet-and-greets and small group interaction. She is constantly photographed, asked for autographs and sought out by tourists, fans, organizations and production companies. 
     With her delightful sense of humor, (like Dolly), attention to detail, musical talent and an extensive background in improvisational theater, C.J. can add fun and excitement to any event.

                                       ​​C.J. Morgan Wins Award in Las Vegas

   Feb. 23, 2017 - C.J. Morgan was presented a REEL Award for her portrayal of country music icon Dolly Parton. The prestigious award is voted on by peers and given in conjunction with the Celebrity Impersonator Convention (CIC) held each year in Las Vegas. 

  In our celebrity-obsessed culture, professional impersonators, tribute artists and lookalikes - often acting as decoys for the real thing – have become a highly specialized subset of show business. Although photo and body doubles have long been a staple in films, today’s tribute artists and bands have a unique niche in the industry as the top tier of bona-fide stars becomes more elusive and scarce. Impersonators are available for shows, meet & greets, emcee duties, commercials, print work and more. It is the often the impersonator or tribute artist who works hardest to share and keep the music and memories alive, sometimes long after the original is gone or retired.

  These days, C.J. prefers to do charity functions, children's events and hospital visits, sharing Dolly Parton's cheery optimism with those who most need it. 

  She started out her musical career playing keyboards in a band with her brother and currently lives in Pigeon Forge, TN. Her father is originally from East Tennessee and she says she drew inspiration from his background and family which was similar to Ms. Parton’s. In fact, she grew up with much of the same old country gospel that the Parton family sang in churches.

  Ms. Morgan impersonates more characters but finds that others, such as Barbara Eden and Joan Rivers are not as much in demand. “Dolly is an international superstar, well-known and loved throughout the world for her music, movies and humanitarian efforts. " Indeed, when recent wildfires devastated parts of Gatlinburg, Tennessee and surrounding areas, Ms. Parton stepped up to the plate directing part of her non-profit Dollywood Foundation toward helping those who lost their homes.

  "I'm proud to portray someone like Dolly," C.J. adds. "It's also very easy for me to play her. I think we have the same sense of humor and at least some of the same values." Her husband, Jack Bullard, who works internationally as a double for film star Jack Nicholson (See www.jacknicholsonimpersonator.com) says "they both share a spontaneous, bubbly, down-to-earth personality as well as physical features." He adds that she has "turned a lot of people on to Dolly's music, including me!"

  C.J. and Jack have put together a motivational speaking presentation that they now offer throughout the country about what it's like to be a celebrity impersonator. (See www.jacklovesdolly.com)
