Born in poverty in Tennessee, Dolly Rebecca Parton had ambition in spades. Her first solo country single was the ironic ‘Dumb Blonde’, which launched the now legendary career of a singer-songwriter with a pure country voice, a gift for story-telling and razor-sharp business instincts.
Smart as a whip, she has created a huge business enterprise, owning the Dollywood theme park and many other hospitality venues. Her Imagination Library project sends free books to children all over the world until they’re five years old. For Dolly, dreams are everything and nothing – you gotta roll your sleeves up and get stuck in.
