Dolly Parton is about to add another trophy to her case.
Parton is slated to receive the MusiCares Person of the Year Award at the next Grammy’s.
Winning the Person of the Year Award has Dolly in some pretty fine company.
Some of the past winners are Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, and Bill Joel.
Of note is the fact she will be the first country singer to add the award to her mantel.
While the Recording Academy is not confirming the report, most of the music industry publications say this is set in stone.
Ms. Parton has been impressing music lovers since 1959.
At the time, Dolly was more of a behind-the-scenes talent.
For almost the first decade of her career she wrote songs that made other people famous.
Then, in 1967, she debuted her singing talents with Hello, I’m Dolly.
Over the next decade, Parton enjoyed significant commercial success.
The 1990s were not so kind to Dolly, but she would start to see her name rise up the charts again with the turn of the millennium, no doubt inspired by her induction into the County Music Hall of Fame.
In addition to her music career, Parton is no stranger to the camera.
Parton made several appearances on Hee Haw as well as numerous other music-oriented shows.
Then, in 1980, she finally made her way to the big screen in 9 to 5.
While Dolly has enjoyed limited success in the movies, she has more than 500 soundtrack credits, more than a dozen producer credits, and 36 acting credits to her name.
