Dolly Parton is an American singer, songwriter, and actress. She has been active in the music industry for over 50 years, and is one of the most successful female musicians of all time. She is best known for her country music, but has also had success in pop, gospel, and bluegrass. Parton has written and performed over 3,000 songs, including her signature song “I Will Always Love You.”
Dolly was born in rural Tennessee and grew up in a large family. She began performing in churches and on the radio at a young age. In 1967, Parton moved to Nashville and signed with Monument Records. She released her first album Hello, I’m Dolly in 1967, which was followed by her breakthrough album, Jolene, in 1974. Parton has since gone on to release over 40 albums, many of which have gone gold or multi–platinum.
Recently, Dolly joined with the amazing a cappella group, Pentatonix, for a beautiful collaboration of her 1973 classic hit, “Jolene”.
