HollywoodLife.com has the exclusive scoop on which celeb recommended Dolly for the show — and which pro dancer she wants to be paired with!

Dolly Parton, please report to the dance floor! A Dancing with the Stars insider reveals to HollywoodLife.com that after Billy Ray Cyrus turned down the producers’ offer for Miley Cyrus to join the show’s 14th season, he suggested producers check with Dolly — and she’s close to signing on the dotted line! “Dolly has sung on the show in the past, and made a great impression on the dancers and producers,” our source tells us exclusively. “Discussions have started … and her request is to dance with Mark Ballas!”

Another singer with the Mirrorball Trophy in his sights is Gavin DeGraw! Our source confirms that Gavin has verbally committed to doing the show — as first reported by The Hollywood Reporter – but still has to sign an official contract. He has a few dates left on his current tour, but we’re told they wouldn’t interfere with the show’s hectic filming schedule.

What do you think of Dolly and Gavin joining the show, HollywoodLifers? Which celebs would you like to see on Dancing with the Stars this season? Drop us a comment and tell us!
