Долли Партон в 1970е годы

Country music icon and actress Dolly Parton is a cultural icon whose voluptuous figure and powerful voice made her popular on both stage and screen.





Parton’s singing career really started to take off in 1967. Around this time, she partnered with Porter Wagoner on The Porter Wagoner Show. Parton and Wagoner became a popular duo and the pair recorded a slew of country hits together. Much was made of her shapely curves, petite stature and warm personality.

Parton’s work with Wagoner also helped her land a contract with RCA Records. Parton scored her first No. 1 country hit in 1971 with “Joshua.” More hits soon followed, including 1973’s “Jolene” and 1974’s “I Will Always Love You”—now one of Parton’s signature songs. She won the Country Music Award for female vocalist in 1975 and 1976.

In 1977, Parton had her first cross-over smash with the uptempo but bittersweet “Here You Come Again.” The song reached the top of both the pop and country charts. She also received her first Grammy Award for her performance of this tune.
