The Influence of Dolly Parton


Hey y’all! In honor of Women’s History Month, I want to talk about one of the most influential women to come from the music industry. Please don’t get mad, but I am referring to a country artist. Dolly Parton is one of my personal favorites and hopefully after this, I will convince you that country music isn’t so bad. Especially when you consider the gem that is Dolly Parton.


Dolly is one of the OG’s of the country genre and was one of the pioneers for country female artists. Not only did she make a break in the male-dominant industry, but she thrived in it. Currently, she is the richest country singer in the world with a net worth of $500 million. She’s also had 382 award nominations and took home 182 of those, according to Wikipedia (this is reliable right?). I don’t know about you, but I find that to be pretty impressive.
