Dolly Parton is nothing short of legendary. With a career that spans well over four decades, her contributions to both country and pop music do not go unnoticed. Despite what we know now, success did not come easily for Parton. She battled the charts, her record label, and good old fashioned sexism when trying to breakthrough to the mainstream. It was not until the now-quintessential country tune “Jolene” was released that she received her inaugural number one spot on the Billboard Country charts. Following this, she released two more singles “I Will Always Love You” and “Love Is Like A Butterfly” that both made their way to the number one slot. She later spent some time creating pop music, which saw moderate success, but nothing to the degree of what Parton created while composing country music. She has since returned to her country roots, releasing several albums and touring to this day. She is currently touring for her 43rd studio album release.
