A long white limo purrs its way through the twilight-lit streets of Music Row, pulling up at the rear entrance to the Country Music Hall of Fame. Inside, a message is conveyed to the gathered crowd of Music City notables, stars including Porter Wagoner, Earl Scruggs, Emmylou Harris, and Alison Krauss, the Mayor and the Governor of the State of Tennessee. The words "She's arrived!" were all it took for the mood in the room to turn to enthusiasm and anticipation.

The occasion was the long-overdue induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame for a much-loved musical star, known throughout the world simply as Dolly! With her exaggerated glittery style, blonde-wigs, powerful stage presence, unique vocal style, and unparalleled songwriting talent, it was an honor well deserved.

Dolly Rebecca Parton was the fourth of twelve children. She was born in 1946 in a small house in the hills of Sevierville, in the poor, rural eastern part of the state of Tennessee. Her mother sang ballads to her children without accompaniment, while her father often played banjo and guitar for family singing. / Issue 5 - September 2018
