Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton's girlish soprano and songs about old-time virtues made her a major country star in the early 1970s. Her playful, self-deprecating comments about her blond sex-bomb image won hearts as her finely crafted country-pop singles yielded a succession of more than 20 country hits, including classics like "Here You Come Again," "Jolene," and "9 to 5." A self-titled theme park, television variety shows, and several successful films, including an Oscar nomination for her role in 9 to 5, in the 1980s helped cement Parton's status a singularly American superstar.
