There's no denying that Dolly Parton is an American institution and a country music legend.
But despite her distinguished career as a singer, writer, actor, and director, Dolly has endured an incredible number of challenges and tragedies throughout her life.
From her humble beginnings to her early struggles to her darkest moments, here's the tragic real-life story of Dolly Parton.
Dolly Parton was born in 1946 in a one-room cabin in Locust Ridge, Tennessee, the fourth child of an illiterate sharecropper and a housewife who birthed 12 kids before the age of 35.
Life wasn't exactly easy for the Parton family. The nights were excruciatingly cold, she shared a bed with her younger siblings and the children often had to wash in a river using soap they made themselves.
But Parton isn't bitter about her hardscrabble roots. In fact, she told People magazine that she's grateful for the lessons her parents taught her in thrift and financial responsibility.
She said: "No matter how much money I make, I'll always count my blessings quicker and more often than I count my money.
" Luckily, Parton's wild and free-ranging childhood in the Appalachian Mountains has provided endless songwriting inspiration.
One of her first big hits, "Coat of Many Colors," tells the story of a coat a mother lovingly sews for her daughter out of donated rags.
The coat draws mockery from the girl's schoolmates, but she knows that, while her family might be short of money, they're at least rich with love. It's no surprise that the story has its roots in Parton's own childhood.
Dolly gets Jimmy riled up with talk about her perfume, her Grand Ole Opry anniversary special, how her acrylic nails helped make "9 to 5" a hit, and a risqué story about getting more than she paid for at a pancake house.
FILM DESCRIPTION: Miss Mona (Dolly Parton) runs the Chicken Ranch, a brothel with a long history in a small Texas town. The locals have a good relationship with the institution, and Mona is respected in the community. The sheriff, Ed Earl Dodd (Burt Reynolds), also looks out for the Chicken Ranch due to his past with Miss Mona. However, when pious reporter Melvin Thorpe (Dom DeLuise) exposes the brothel, outside interests want it shut down, putting the governor (Charles Durning) in a tough spot.
