However, what thickens the Queen of Country account the most is Dollywood, the theme park she co-founded in Tennessee, United States.
Parton was born in the same state of Dollywood, in 1946. Coming from a humble rural family, he heard his mother sing while looking after her and her eleven siblings.
Dolly started singing in church and later on radio and television stations.

But I’ve always wanted to go to town. I wanted to wear a suit,” Hendricks told Forbes magazine in 2017.
She was one of nine daughters of a dairy couple in Wisconsin, and with her husband she built ABC Supply, the nation’s leading wholesaler of rooftop products.
Before she presided over her own empire, Hendrix was a teenage mother, shortly before she reached adulthood.
