(UPI) -- Country music's self-proclaimed "Backwoods Barbie" was involved in a fender bender in Nashville Monday morning.

TMZ reported that Dolly Parton, 67, was taken to the hospital with minor injuries after the SUV in which she was a front-seat passenger was hit by another vehicle. Police said that Judy Ogle, the SUV's driver and Parton's longtime friend, was not at fault in the accident.

"I was in a fender bender this morning here in Nashville, but I am all good." Parton tweeted after the accident. "Just a little tired and sore. Resting at home now!"
