Dolly Rebecca Parton (born January 19, 1946[1]) is an American singer-songwriter, author, multi-instrumentalist, actress and philanthropist, best-known for her work in country music.

In the four-and-a-half decades since her national-chart début, she remains one of the most-successful female artists in the history of the country genre which garnered her the title of 'The Queen of Country Music',[2] with twenty-five number-one singles,[3] and a record forty-one top-10 country albums.[4] She has the distinction of having performed on a top-five country hit in each of the last five decades[5] and is tied with Reba McEntire as the only country artists with No. 1 singles in four consecutive decades.[6]

She is known for her distinctive soprano,[7] sometimes bawdy humor, flamboyant dress sense and voluptuous figure.
