Dolly Parton Sets Three Guinness World Records!

Dolly Parton is now the holder of three Guinness World Records!

The country music icon was honoured with her new certificates during a celebration in Nashville where she was told she had broken the record for the most decades on the US Hot Country Songs chart (female) – SEVEN, FYI – that’s right, she’s made it on the charts over 70 glorious years!!


She’s also had the most number 1 hits on the US Hot Country Songs chart by a female artist with 25!

And she broke her own existing record for the most hits on the US Hot Country’s Songs chart by a female artist with 109!

And yep, she was pretty darn thrilled about it:

“This is the kind of stuff that really makes you very humble and very grateful for everything that’s happened,” she tells the Guinness World Records.

“I had no idea that I would be in the Guinness World Records this many times! I am flattered and honoured. 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.”


Singer-songwriter George Jones is the only other artist with seven decades of hit-making success on the Hot Country charts.
