Dolly Rebecca Parton is an award winning country music singer-songwriter-musician and actress who was born, on the 19 January 1946, in Locust Ridge, Tennessee (USA)...
Dolly Parton rose to prominence in the late 1960s when the legendary Porter Wagoner hired her as the female side-kick to his #1 syndicated television show. The Wagoner/Parton duets that followed, combined with Dolly’s early 1970s solo work, shone the spotlight firmly on “…pretty Miss Dolly Parton”.

By 1976, Dolly had left Porter’s TV show for one of her own (aptly named 'Dolly'), she had also won the Country Music Awards’s prestigious ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ award and even begun to make a name for herself outside of the USA.

The songstress today remains as passionate as ever about her recording career. To date, Dolly Parton has released over 70 studio albums and charted more than 100 singles on the American Billboard chart which includes Jolene (1973), I Will Always Love You (1974), Here You Come Again (1977), Heartbreaker (1978), 9 to 5 (1980) and Islands in the Stream with Kenny Rogers (1983).

The Queen of Country Music has sold in excess of 100 million records worldwide, composed more than 3,000 songs, played concert stadiums around the world and even has her very own amusement park named Dollywood.
