71-year-old Dolly Parton has been an influencer in the music industry for years. She released an album “I Believe in You” which is her very first children’s album and agreed that children cherish her.
Dolly Rebecca Parton is an American singer, a record producer, an actress, a multi-instrumentalist and an author. For a while she produced general country music, then in 1967 she made her album debut with the album Hello, I’m Dolly. After this album she steadily climbed up the ladder of the music industry, bringing in a lot of money both with her solos and duets. However, in the 1990s, her sales went down, and her music was not that fetching.
She found her way back up since 2000 and has released some albums with her label; Dolly Records.
Dolly Parton explains that because of her high pitched voice, children relate to her just like they do with many other exaggerated characters; say Mother Goose. Dolly has been spending a lot of time with children, probably because of her Imagination Library. The library has been, for the past years, giving little kids books until they get to kindergarten. This project has been going on for a while, and in the next few weeks, it will have reached the 100 millionth book that they have given to children.
Just as children love her, the 71-year-old singer also adores children. It is for this reason, she decided to start singing children songs, starting with “I Believe In You.” She mentioned that the money that the album will bring would solely be for buying more books for children.
Despite the love she has for children the singer has never had any of her own, and many people have wondered about it. She, therefore, decided to make it clear why she did not have children. She says that God always has a plan for everything and a reason for giving everyone everything. Therefore God had a plan for her not to her kids so that everybody’s would be hers. Of which they are now. Her reason for her childlessness sure made sense.
Her fans love her and cannot wait for the release of her much talked of a sequel to her ‘9 to 5’ movie. The fans have been waiting so much for this release and have been waiting impatiently. There had been some tease in the September’s awards when the whole cast had gone up the stage.
Parton has achieved many awards including 25 Recording Industry Association of America certified gold, Multi-Platinum and Platinum awards. More than 20 of her songs have reached No. 1 on the Billboard country music charts. Parton has garnered two Academy Award nominations, seven Academy of Country Music Awards, ten Country Music Association Awards; which only seven female artists, including her, have had the chance to win.
Parton is married to Carl Thomas Dean, whose surname she rarely uses. However, she clarified that her passport has her name as Dolly Parton Dean. Her husband is retired from running an asphalt road paving business and has managed to avoid the public successfully. The two are rarely seen together, even in public events. Parton once commented that Dean has only seen her perform ones. She, however, says that it does not mean that they never spend time together; they do so but rarely in public.
