As the queen of country music, Dolly Parton is a legend in her own right. Born in 1946 in rural Tennessee, Dolly began performing as a child and was heavily influenced by the music of her church. When just 18, she moved to Nashville in search of fame and fortune. She has gone on to be the most honoured female country performer of all time.
Achieving 25 RIAA certified gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards, Dolly has had 25 number 1's on the Billboard Country charts, a record for a female artist. She has 41 career top 10 country albums, and 110 career charted singles over the past 40 years. Dolly has also been awarded with 7 Grammy Awards, 10 Country Music Association Awards, 5 Academy of Country Music Awards, 3 American Music Awards and is one of only five female artists to win the Country Music Association's Entertainer of the Year Award.
