Santa Came Early: ‘National Treasure’ Dolly Parton Adds Three New Guinness World Records To Her Name

BizPac Review

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!”
