After more than 60 years in the spotlight, the “9 to 5” hitmaker has sold over 100 million records, earned 26 No. 1 songs on the Billboard country charts, and won 10 Grammy Awards, among many other accolades.

Dolly has also appeared in several films, including “9 to 5” alongside Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, written books, donated to several charitable causes, and even has her own “Dollywood” theme park.

In the last year alone, the real-life superhero donated $1 million to coronavirus research at Vanderbilt University Medical Center, which helped fund the Moderna vaccine.
