About Dolly Parton
Parton – born Dolly Rebecca Parton on January 19, 1946 – is an American singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, actress, author, businesswoman, and humanitarian. She is best known for her country music career. In 1967, Parton made her album debut with Hello, I’m Dolly, following up on her success as a songwriter for others to enjoy success as a solo artist throughout the 1960s (including a series of duet albums with Porter Wagoner), before her best years in terms of sales and chart success began in the 1970s and continued until the 1980s.

About Dolly Parton‘s Family
She was born in a one-room cabin on the banks of the Little Pigeon River in Pittman Center, Tennessee, on January 19, 1946. Avie Lee Caroline (née Owens; 1923–2003) was the fourth of twelve children born to Robert Lee Parton Sr. (1921–2000) and Avie Lee Caroline. Three of her siblings have died by 2021. Rebecca (Dunn) Whitted is the great-great-grandmother of Dolly Parton. Parton’s father, “Lee”, had a small tobacco farm and acreage in the mountains of East Tennessee. To supplement the farm’s modest income, he worked construction jobs.
