Guinness World Records traveled to Nashville to present Parton with the two certificates, which will be logged in the 2018 edition, the newspaper stated. Over the past seven decades, Parton has brought unimaginable joy to her fellow humans, whether she's making handsome country music, starring in cinematic masterpieces like Rhinestone and The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, posting uplifting messages on her social media, or playing a tiny saxophone (as pictured above).
In addition to earning two spots in this year's Guinness World Records, Dolly also holds several hall of fame honors, including in the Country Music Hall of Fame, Grammy Hall of Fame, and Songwriters Hall of Fame. She's had 73 other top 20 hits, including her most recent entry in 2016: A new version of her beloved 1974 title "Jolene" she performed with the Pentatonix. Some of her biggest hits include "Jolene", "Dumb Blonde", "Coat of Many Colors", and "I Will Always Love You". "I try not to dwell on just trying to be commercial and what's a radio hit", said Parton. "Usually when an idea hits me, it comes from my heart". Jones charted songs in seven decades, 1950's to 2010's, but only cracked the top 20 during five of those decades.
On top of her Guinness World Records accomplishments, Parton will soon receive The Governor's Award at the 32nd Midsouth Regional Emmy Awards for her work on Smoky Mountain Rising.
