About This Quiz

There is so much to love about Dolly Parton.

She is a prime example of how determination, dedication and pure hard work can get you to the top... and keep you there! For most country music lovers, Dolly is the First Lady of Country. Born in 1946, Dolly's family was very poor. They had one thing, however, and that was love, something Dolly displays to her fans at each and every performance.

Her musical career began when she was 13 and recorded her first song. Moving to Nashville after finishing high school, Dolly initially established herself as a songwriter. Her first record label had her singing bubblegum pop before country but Dolly knew exactly what she wanted to do... and country music was it.

Success followed in the 1970s and 1980s with Dolly even branching out into the movie business with numerous appearances in Hollywood films. Dolly even crossed over to the mainstream with a number of hits, but always kept country music at the core of all her work. Now in her 70s, Dolly continues to perform all around the world.
