Country music legend Dolly Parton stopped by The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Thursday to give the backstage scoop on her new movie, Joyful Noise, about a feud between two women in small town Georgia vying to take the reins of the local church choir. "I popped her a few times," Parton said of filming a scene with co-star Queen Latifah in which the two women lash out at each other's conflicting personalities. "She deserved it," she added.

Stewart welcomed Parton's return to the show with open arms. "I don't say this to everyone," he prefaced, "but I missed you."

After dishing about the gospel-themed film, Parton opened up about her "holly-rolling, Pentecostal" upbringing that featured family-wide singing and guitar-playing. "Same here," the New York- and Jewish-bred Stewart joked.
