Dolly Parton Background
of 12 children, Dolly Rebecca Parton grew up in poverty in rural Appalachia. She first came into contact with music through
her mother who liked to sing, and Parton mainly was exposed to church hymns. A relative gave Parton her first guitar and soon
after, she began to write her own songs. By the time she was 10 years old, Parton started entertaining publicly, making appearances
on Knoxville-area TV and radio shows. Just three years later, she stepped into the Grand Ole Opry. Now hungry for a music
career, Parton was determined to move to Nashville once she finished high school.
Parton's singing career took flight
in 1967 when she teamed up with country music singer Porter Wagoner. Parton joined him on The Porter Wagoner Show, and together
they became a beloved pair. They additionally composed a string of country hits together, and her work with Wagoner helped
her score a deal with RCA Records. Joshua was Parton's first No. 1 country hit, which arrived in 1971. More successes followed
with Jolene (1973) and I Will Always Love You (1974) - which is today one of her trademark tunes. In 1975 and 1976, Parton
earned the Country Music Award for female vocalist.
Then in 1977, Parton crossed over into pop with Here You Come Again,
which shot to the top of both country and pop charts. She earned her first Grammy Award for this song.
She reached what
is perhaps perceived as the climax of her mainstream success in the 1980s. It was at this time that she took a starring role
in the comedy, 9 to 5, and also made contributions to the hit film's soundtrack. Parton made a dent on multiple charts with
the title tune and she also picked up an Academy Award nod for her acting performance. In 1982, she went on to take a leading
role in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, which gave a whole new generation exposure to her 1974 song, I Will Always Love
You. The infectious Islands in the Stream, a duet with Kenny Rogers, arrived a year later. Now an established singer and actress,
Parton decided to spread her wings even more. She opened her own amusement theme park in 1986. Dollywood, located in Pigeon
Forge, Tennessee, today still draws visitors from around the globe.
Throughout her career, Parton continued to collaborate
successfully with a number of talented luminaries. She recorded the album, Trio, in 1987, along with Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou
Harris. The album earned a Grammy. And, in the 1990s, she put a new spin on her signature tune, I Will Always Love You, as
a duet with Vince Gill. She additionally worked with Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn on Honky Tonk Angels.
By the late
'90s, Parton revisited her Appalachian roots with The Grass Is Blue (1999). She turned to the talented Alison Krauss and Patty
Loveless for some help on the album, which earned a Grammy in 1999. In 2000, Parton was inducted into the Country Music Hall
In 2006, Parton was celebrated, along with four other artists, for her lifetime contributions as part of the
annual Kennedy Center Honors. She additionally claimed a second Academy Award nod for Travelin' Thru, which was a part of
the Transamerica soundtrack.
Parton is tireless when it comes to penning songs and recording, she put out Backwoods
Barbie in 2008 and contributed songs for a musical adapted from her 9 to 5 movie. Better Day arrived in 2011, which did well
on the country album charts.
