An internationally renowned superstar, the iconic and irrepressible Dolly Parton has contributed
countless treasures to the world of entertainment. All-inclusive sales of singles, albums, hits
collections, paid digital downloads and compilation usage during her illustrious career have
topped a staggering 100 million records worldwide.
Achieving 25 RIAA certified gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards, Dolly has had 25 songs
reach No. 1 on the Billboard Country charts, a record for a female artist. Dolly has garnered 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.
Making her film debut in the 1980 hit comedy “9 to 5,” Dolly earned rave reviews for her
performance and an Oscar nomination for writing the title tune, along with her second and third
Grammy Awards. Roles in “Steel Magnolias,” “Best Little Whorehouse in Texas,” “Rhinestone,”
and “Straight Talk” followed.
Dolly saw a cherished dream become a reality in 1986 with the opening of her own theme park,
Dollywood, in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. In 1988, Dolly began the Dollywood Foundation which
 funds Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library across America and in Canada by giving every
preschool child a book each month from the time he or she is born until the child reaches
kindergarten. Currently 60,000,000 books are mailed to children in the US, Canada and
throughout the UK.
In 1999, Dolly was inducted as a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. She has her own
star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and in 2004, the U.S. Library of Congress presented her
with their Living Legend Award for her contribution to the cultural heritage of the United States.
In December 2015, more than 13 million tuned into “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” and
was the most-watched film on broadcast networks since May 2012.
