Dolly Parton is a story with a soundtrack. Hits like "Jolene," "I Will Always Love You," and "9 to 5" make us smile and sing along, but the arc of her life from poverty to massive success is every bit as entertaining. Parton is still going strong today, with the same spirit and country sass we've seen over her more-than 50-year career.
