Dolly Parton Makes History As Only Country Artist To Ever Chart Top 20 Hits In 6 Consecutive Decades

Longevity is not an easy thing to achieve in the music business, where today’s chart-topper often becomes tomorrow’s has-been.

For the few artists who have achieved a long-term career, one name stands among all others when it comes to the country charts: Dolly Parton, who has just achieved a feat nobody has ever attained by charting songs in the Hot Country Top 20 in every decade since the 1960s.

As Billboard reports, the “9 to 5” singer has just landed in the top 20 again thanks to her reworking of “Jolene” with a cappella vocal group Pentatonix, from her new album of duets titled “Forever Country,” which currently sits at #7.

This means that the country-music icon, 70, has had a string of top-20 hits spanning six decades.
