Popular country singer and film actress Dolly Parton has made the American Dream come true. Growing up in an extremely poor family, an undernourished and sleepy artist from ten years old took vocal lessons with her last money, which eventually paid for herself with interest.

In 1959, the young talent, who served three years in the church, won the main prize at the Tennessee Aspiring Vocal Competition. This event became the starting point in the charming blonde's musical career.



Childhood and youth

Dolly Rebecca Parton was born on January 19, 1946 in Tennessee. Unfortunately, there is very little information on the network regarding the childhood and adolescence of a vocal performer. It is only known for certain that the artist's family consisted of twelve children (her sister Stella also became a singer) and before becoming famous, Dolly had been writing compositions for popular country musicians for a couple of years.

Among other things, in November 2016 the premiere of the film "A Multicolored Christmas by Dolly Parton: Circle of Love" took place. The plot of the picture is based on the biography of the singer. The tape begins with a story about Robert Lee, the head of a large family who is experiencing financial difficulties.

A man sacrifices a lot in order to buy an expensive ring for his wife for Christmas. Children - baby Dolly, her sisters and brothers - also do their bit and refuse gifts to help dad. At this time, Dolly's uncle, Billy, realizes that the girl's extraordinary vocal abilities will help her family no longer be below the poverty line.




Dolly performed her first author's single "Puppy Love" at a competition in New York, and in 1967 RCA signed a contract with the promising singer. In the same year, the vocalist's first album, "Hello I'm Dolly", was released. Then Parton sang in a duet with Porter Wagoner for a couple of years.

This unexpectedly formed alliance became golden for Dolly. The tracks "Just Someone I Used To Know", "Daddy Was An Old Time Preacher Man" paved the way for Parton in Hollywood.

It is worth noting that cooperation with Wagenor did not prevent the singer from acting in films, replenishing her filmography with new tapes. So, after the end of filming in the film "Steel Magnolias", the artist went on her first large-scale tour of Europe and overtook Madonna in terms of ratings.

In 1971, Dolly attracted widespread attention with her album "Coat of Many Colors", which is still considered a milestone in the history of country music. Three years later, the singer wrote and released the singles "Jolene" (the best Dolly song, according to Rolling Stone magazine) and "I Will Always Love You".

Over the following years, Parton was the most sought-after performer in the world of country music, but dreamed of more. In 1977, the album "Here You Come Again" was released, which brought Dolly fame outside the United States.

During this period, the memorable singer was again invited to act in films. In 1980, the premiere of the comedy "From Nine to Five" took place, according to the plot of which the actress and actress Jane Fonda rebel against a tyrant boss. The playful song "9 to 5", written by the artist for this film, became an informal anthem of office workers, was nominated for an Oscar and after the premiere of the tape took the first lines in the American charts for a couple of weeks.

Two years later, Dolly Parton co-recorded the song "Islands in the Stream" with Kenny Rogers, which for a long time topped the Billboard Hot 100. Over the next two decades, no country artist has achieved such success on the pop charts.

In the late 1980s, Dolly returned to her traditional country audience. In 1987 she released the album "Trio", recorded together with country divas Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt (the continuation of this disc followed 12 years later), and in 1993 she delighted fans with another collaboration. This time with Loretta Lynn and Tammy Wynette.

1998 saw the release of Julio Iglesias's Ma Vie: Mes Plus Grands Succes, in which Parton also participated (composition When You Tell Me That You Love Me).

In 1999 and 2002, Dolly's new albums arrived on the shelves of record stores, for each of which Parton received a Grammy. In 2005, the artist won an Oscar for Best Song for Travelin 'Thru from the comedy drama Transamerica. In the same year, the vocalist was awarded the US National Medal in the Arts.

In the period from 2003 to 2016, the performer's discography was replenished with the albums For God and Country, Those Were the Days, Backwoods Barbie, Better Day, Blue Smoke and Pure & Simple.



Personal life

In May 1966, Dolly married Karl Thomas Dean, whom she had met for two years before. It is known that the chosen one of the artist had nothing to do with show business and worked in the road service.

The husband always avoided the attention of the paparazzi and accompanied his wife to a social event only once. As a childless couple, the couple raised the singer's younger brothers and sisters in their home in Nashville, who, according to Parton herself, called her "aunt grandmother."

In 2014, Dolly commented on the dramatic change in the image of her goddaughter, singer Miley Cyrus. Then, in an interview with media representatives, the performer of the song "I will always love you" said that the public should pay attention to Miley's talent, and not to her shocking behavior.

Cyrus writes songs herself, she has excellent vocal abilities and the fact that she suddenly became bold and decisive for everyone does not spoil her at all. On the contrary, it gives her a certain zest, which was previously lacking.

Despite the articles that were published at that time in all publications in Europe, Parton was convinced that there was no reason for concern, since the changes went to the idol of the youth only for the benefit.

It is known that back in 2013, the publication "GQ" included the former star of the series "Hannah Montana" in the list of the least influential people. True, after Miley became one of the most talked about figures in show business, and the number of views of the diva's clips on YouTube broke all records, Time magazine rehabilitated the shocking person in the eyes of listeners.

According to Dolly, the goddaughter was proud and treasured of her work on Hannah Montana. However, people decided that Miley would transfer the image of an exemplary, correct girl from the series into real life. Cyrus literally suffocated in the role imposed on her by the public and felt that it was vital for her to destroy the image that the film in which Miley was filmed had formed among the public.

It is worth noting that Dolly is not only Cyrus's godmother, but also her friend. The singer of the song "Wrecking Ball" always spoke well of Parton, calling the artist her idol and role model. Dolly starred in the first episodes of Hannah Montana and sang a duet with her goddaughter more than once.



Dolly Parton now

In 2017, the vociferous singer travels to cities and countries, delighting fans with the performance of hits of bygone years. In October, the artist gave a concert in Australia and also visited Nashville, where Dolly sang the song "Islands in the Stream" with Kenny Roger at the Bridgestone Arena.

Despite her busy work schedule and touring, the artist does not forget about her fans. On Instagram, Parton regularly uploads photos from concerts, as well as video cuts from the set of the show, in which the charismatic blonde has been filmed to this day.

It is also worth noting that social networks are not the only resource that tells fans about the latest news from Dolly's life. On various Internet portals and in print publications, materials related to the creative biography of the Hollywood star are often published.
