Country music icon Dolly Parton made her debut in 1967, with her album Hello, I'm Dolly. She had a steady success throughout the 1960s and well into the 1980s. Dolly herself entered and lost to a male drag queen. Although… the artist couldn’t manage to win a Dolly Parton look alike contest and even lost out to a guy.

She later explained "They had a bunch of Chers and Dollys that year, so I just over-exaggerated -- made my beauty mark bigger, the eyes bigger, the hair bigger, everything," she said, laughing. "All these beautiful drag queens had worked for weeks and months getting their clothes. So I just got in the line and I just walked across, and they just thought I was some little short gay guy.. but I got the least applause."
