Queen of country and queen of our hearts, there are fewer music icons more celebrated than the one and only Dolly Parton. Dolly achieved what is extremely difficult, crossing over from country music into mainstream success.

Starting out in 1959, the girl from Sevier County, Tennessee made a name for herself as a solo artist as well as a songwriter and actress. Parton has the distinction of being the most honored female country performer of all time, having won numerous awards and accolades. We love you Dolly — the higher the hair, the closer to God! Keep on singin’.
