Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton Born on January 19, 1946, Rebecca Parton is an American singer, songwriter, musician, actor, philanthropist, and businesswoman. Her lengthy career spanning several decades in country music is what has made her most famous. In 1967, Dolly Parton debuted with the release of Hello, I’m Dolly, following her success as a songwriter for other musicians.
Because of this, she was successful for the remainder of the 1960s (both as a solo performer and with several duet records with Porter Wagoner), and in the 1970s and 1980s, she reached her peak sales and chart position.

In the new millennium, she achieved commercial success once more, releasing albums on numerous independent labels, including her own Dolly Records label, since 2000. Parton’s albums from the 1990s did not do as well on the sales front, but in the new century, she was able to return to financial success.

Dolly Parton Career

Parton started her performing career as a young girl, singing on East Tennessee community radio and television shows. She had already appeared on The Cas Walker Show, which aired simultaneously on WIVK Radio and WBIR-TV in Knoxville, Tennessee, by the time the clock struck ten.
She began recording (the single “Puppy Love”) at the age of thirteen for a little company named Goldband Records in Louisiana. Additionally, she sang at the Grand Ole Opry, where she first saw Johnny Cash, who urged her to follow her professional instincts. Her debut album, Born to Run, which she published at the age of fourteen, was followed by the single “Puppy Love.”

Parton received an invitation to join country music performer and guitarist Porter Wagoner’s organization in 1967. In addition, he gave her a position in his touring show and a regular role on his weekly syndicated television show, The Porter Wagoner Show.
According to Dolly Parton’s 1994 book, at first, a sizable section of Wagoner’s audience was unhappy that Norma Jean, the singer Parton had replaced, had left the show and was reluctant to welcome Parton (often calling out loudly for Norma Jean from the crowd).

When Parton started making appearances on the show, this was the situation. Wagoner’s assistance, though, helped Parton get admitted into the program. Wagoner was successful in getting her signed to RCA Victor, his record label. RCA decided that Wagoner’s debut record as a duet would be the best way to protect their investment.
Published around the close of 1967, this song was a version of “The Last Thing on My Mind” by Tom Paxton. It entered the country charts’ Top 10 in January 1968. This was the first of the two songs that went on to become Top 10 hits in six almost straight weeks.

The first solo song that Dolly Parton recorded for RCA Victor was “Just Because I’m a Woman.” When it was released in the summer of 1968, it peaked at number 17 on the charts and was a moderate hit. Not even “In the Good Old Days (When Times Were Bad),” which would go on to become a classic, was as well-liked as her duets with Wagoner throughout the next two years.

Dolly Parton Family, Husband, and Boyfriend
  • Dolly Parton was born on January 19, 1946, in Pittman Center, Tennessee, in a log cabin on the banks of the Little Pigeon River. The cottage had only one room. Her parents, Robert Lee Parton Sr. (1921–2000) and Avie Lee Caroline (née Owens; 1923–2003), had twelve children together when she was born.
    Parton was given the middle name Rebecca Whitted by her maternal great-great-grandmother Rebecca (Dunn) Whitted.

    On May 30, 1966, Parton and Carl Thomas Dean were married in Ringgold, Georgia. On July 20, 1942, Carl Thomas Dean was born in Nashville, TN.
    Parton has disclosed that her passport has the name “Dolly Parton Dean,” even though she does not use Dean’s last name in her professional life. She also occasionally signs legal documents using Dean’s surname.
