Dolly Parton always has one, well two, things to rely on.

"When all else fails, do a boob joke," Parton told Fox News with a laugh.

It's a mantra the country legend, known for her ample assets, lives by.

The 71-year-old said she was forced to fall back on a "boob joke" at the 2017 Emmy Awards on Sept. 18.

The singer presented an award alongside her "9 to 5" co-stars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda at the star-studded event.

She was taken by surprise when Fonda and Tomlin used the moment to make a statement against Trump calling him a "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot."

Parton, who makes it a point to stay out of politics, lightened the mood before the trio announced the winner for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Limited Series or Movie.

"Well, I know about support," the country legend said pointing at her chest.

Parton told us she was fine with her former co-stars voicing their political opinions but it's not her cup of tea.

"I don't voice my political opinions," she told us. "I just get out there and entertain. To me, that's what I do. I don't condemn them."
