Dolly Parton and her cohorts in the album Trio, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt, are headed to Hollywood. More specifically, the three superstars are set to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Their official sidewalk plaque, denoting their hugely successful recording careers, will join other 2019 inductees along the walkway, including Oscar winners Robert De Niro and Anne Hathaway, singer Michael Bublé and writer-director-actor Tyler Perry.

Parton’s presence on the Hollywood Walk of Fame will double, as she received her first star there in 1984. With the new honor, she becomes the first woman in the 21st century to have a second star. In a video posted on Twitter, Parton said, “I am so excited that I have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but with two of my best friends….” She also noted, humorously, that the distinction of having a second star had been pointed out to her by the Selection Committee, saying, “That’s natural. I like to do things in pairs, if you know what I mean.” Last year, Parton simultaneously earned two spots in the Guinness Book of World Records for achievements on the country charts. 

A date for the unveiling of the Trio’s star has yet to be revealed. The three music icons released their Complete Trio Collection on CD in 2016, which included the two studio LPs they recorded together as well as other unreleased tracks.
