She is known for saying, “It costs a lot of money to look this cheap,” and has proven to be a multi-talented singer, songwriter, record producer, actress, author, businesswoman, and philanthropist. It is uplifting and inspirational to see how Dolly Parton rose from humble beginnings to become the most revered female country performer of all time.
Parton has amassed a $600 million fortune that she is happy to share.
