The multi-instrumentalist and legendary country artist Dolly Parton has been releasing music since the early 60s with her success peaking from her first debut album. She has been certified in all the awards you could think of honored by the RIAA (gold, platinum and multi platinum).

Country music singer Dolly Rebecca Parton is coming from an impoverished family; her father was a tobacco farmer in Sevierville, Tennessee. She is also the godmother of Miley Cyrus. Once, she joined a Dolly Parton look-alike contest, however a drag queen. She is known for her famous country hits and the awards that she won owing to them. Let’s take a look at Parton’s top ten hits!

The song is about how lonely she feels and how much she misses home.

#2. Real Love

The song was a duet between Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton, which was written by David Malloy.

#3. Here, I Am ft. Sia

The song was written by Parton for her album “Coat of Many Colors” in 1971. Later on, it was re-recorded featuring Sia in 2018 for the Netflix film “Dumplin’” and made a huge success.

#4. Eagle When She Flies

The song is from Parton’s thirty first studio album. The song is about women in general, sweet as magnolia but strong as steel. It is about what women are capable of.

#5. Why’d You Come In Here

This is one of the sexiest country hits ever as she describes her man who drives her crazy.

#6. Here You Come Again

This pop song of Parton is such a good ‘70s hit. Originally released as a single in the mid-90s, it reached number three on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and earned Parton her award for ‘Best Female Country Vocal Performance” at the Grammys.

Jolene! Jolene! Jolene! A country classic, ranking no. 217 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the ‘500 Greatest Songs of All Time” back in 2004. It soon became one of the songs that was most recorded by other artists.

The legendary singer was mainly inspired by a 10-year-old fan of Parton; she was a lovely girl who was asking for a signature of Parton. However, during the songwriting phase, there was a woman that was flirting with her husband, Carl Dean. It won’t be wrong to claim that It is one of the most covered songs of all time, but If you check a cover, we highly recommend the Miley Cyrus one!
