For the Love of Dolly (2006)

For the Love of Dolly, more than being a love song to the titular singer, is a love song to the five fans who have devoted their lives and homes to her. Although Dolly Parton appears in the documentary it is through the use of digital video filmed by fans and not interviews; in fact, only one Parton-performed track is used in the movie at all (Hello God over the final credits). The fan profiles are both poignant and uplifting - two adjectives I would also use to describe the beloved singer/songwriter herself.
