Dolly Parton is undeniably one of the most successful and influential musicians of all time.
Her fifty plus year music career has included dozens of hit singles — including Jolene, and I Will Always Love You — and speaks for itself. That she’s also found time for philanthropic work, including donating $1 million to Covid-19 vaccine research and founding an organization to send free books to young children, only adds to her legacy.
If you count yourself as one of her fans, Amazon has recently launched a storefront with official Dolly Parton merch. Every piece is licensed, so you don’t need to worry about getting a poor quality bootleg that doesn’t benefit Dolly. We’ve collected our favorite pieces from the collection below, but encourage you to look through the entire thing. We’ve also included some of her other works, including a children’s book she authored and one of her breakout movies, to highlight her well-rounded career.

This book is also available as an Audible audiobook, which is read by Dolly herself.
