Dolly Parton Biography


Dolly Parton was born the fourth of 12 children to a poor tobacco farmer in the Greenbrier Valley in the Great Smoky Mountains in 1946. She lived with her family in a rustic one room cabin while growing up. Music quickly became an important part of her life and most of her early singing performances were in her local church along with her family. Some of Parton’s early songs, such has “Coat of Many Colors” reflect on her poverty stricken beginnings.

Parton graduated from high school and quickly moved to Nashville to seek her fortune. She began writing hit songs for other country artists, and then quickly became a singing star in her own right. By 1980, she was making movies such as 9 to 5 with Jane Fonda, and Steel Magnolias.

Dolly Parton has invested much of her earnings into The Dollywood Company, which operates a theme park appropriately called Dollywood, a dinner theatre, a water park ( Dollywood’s Splash Country) and a restaurant. Dollywood is the 24th most popular theme park in America with more than 3 million visitors each year. With more than 3,000 employees, it is the largest employer in the area. She also owns The Dixie Stampede dinner theatre, which has two locations in Branson, Missouri, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Parton, in collaboration with Gaylord Opryland, announced plans to open a $50 million water and winter snow park in Nashville. She is co-owner of Sandollar Productions, along with her former manager Sandy Gallin.

Parton is the author of 5 popular children’s books, as well as an autobiography.
