Music icon Dolly Parton will be celebrating this Christmas with three new gifts under her tree after racking up three new awards highlighting her seven-decade-long career.
The Guinness World Records Association presented the 75-year-old with three new certificates marking her achievements as a country singing artist, including breaking her own record of U.S. Hot Country Songs by a female artist with an astounding 109 hit songs to make the list.
In the Nashville presentation, she also received two new titles as a female artist for the most decades – seven to be precise- and the most Number 1 hits – at a whopping 25 songs – to make the list.
“This is the kind of stuff that really makes you very humble and very grateful for everything that’s happened,” Parton commented. “I had no idea that I would be in Guinness World Records this many times! I am flattered and honored. I’ve had a lot of people help me get here. Thanks to all of you and all of them for helping me have all of this.”
“I’ve loved being able to make a living in the business that I love so much,” Parton said. “I’ve been so fortunate to see my dreams come true, and I just hope to continue for as long as I can. You’re going to have to knock me down to stop me!”
