Dolly Parton has confessed to a crush on menacing country legend Johnny Cash.

Johnny was like the John Wayne of country music

The country queen admits the Man in Black was the first star who turnedher on when she saw him in concert in Nashville, Tennessee.

She tells The Globe, "I was sitting in the audience and that's when I first knew about sex appeal, someone making me feel something inside. "He had this tick when he moved his shoulder...

and it was sexy". Dolly adds, "Johnny was like the John Wayne of country music...

He didn't claim to be a great singer...

but he was just great at what he did".
