We're framing every single one of these.
Dolly Parton—queen of country music, style icon, and wildly successful businesswoman—is well accustomed to sharing bits and pieces of what she's learned throughout the years since her humble beginnings in Tennessee. She may be known for her older, more classic songs like "Coat of Many Colors," "9 to 5," and "Jolene," but she's still gifting us with brand new music even after decades in the business. (Dolly even recorded and released a brand new song during the coronavirus pandemic!) Of course, music isn't the only field she excels in. Between her many movies, her one-of-a-kind Dollywood amusement park in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and her amazing children's literacy organization (Dolly Parton's Imagination Library), Dolly's star power is totally undeniable.
Thankfully, the 74-year-old is willing to share her secrets, and has spent plenty of time dishing out genius one-liners and words of wisdom. Whether she's doling out warnings about letting "living" get in the way of "life," or making hilarious jokes about the—ahem—artificial parts of her appearance, Dolly always seems to have the perfect piece of wisdom to impart on her many followers and fans. We'd all do well to heed her excellent advice! Here, we've rounded up the Queen of Country's most sage counsel.
