Dolly Parton's 76th Birthday
with Amazing Old Pictures

Nobody is cooler than Dolly Parton, it is widely accepted (or should be, as least).

She's established herself as a country singer-songwriter, actor, businesswoman, humanitarian, and theme park owner throughout her 76 years on this world.

Also, do you recall how substantially she spent in the Moderna vaccine's development? What a woman she is.

Parton has won 11 Grammy Awards, ten Country Music Association Awards, and four People's Choice Awards, and was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1999.

She and her husband, Carl Thomas Dean, have been married since 1966, making them relationship goals in the extreme.

In honour of Parton's birthday (January 19, 1946) in Sevier County, Tennessee, we've gathered some of our favourite photos of the country music legend.
