About Dolly Parton
Dolly Parton first appeared on television in Knoxville at the tender age of 13, and has become one of the most successful country music performers ever. Her accolades include 25 RIAA-certified gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards, 25 songs that have reached No.1 on the Billboard country music charts, 41 top 10 country albums (a record for any artist) and 110 career-charted singles over the past 40 years. She has garnered nine Grammy Awards (and 47 nominations), two Academy Award nominations, 10 Country Music Association Awards, seven Academy of Country Music Awards, three American Music Awards, and is one of only seven female artists to win the Country Music Association's Entertainer of the Year Award. She is also one of the few to have received at least one nomination from the Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, Tony Awards, and Emmy Awards.
As an actress, she has performed in films such as 9 to 5 (which she went on to turn into a musical featuring a completely orginal score) and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas – for which she earned Golden Globe nominations for Best Actress – as well as Rhinestone, Steel Magnolias, Straight Talk and Joyful Noise.
Inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1999, Parton has composed over 3,000 songs, including two-time US country chart-topper I Will Always Love You (which also became an international pop hit for Whitney Houston), Jolene, Coat of Many Colors, and the aforementioned 9 to 5.
