Dolly gets two Guinness World Records!

Dolly Parton turns 72 today. But yesterday, she was awarded two World Records by Guiness.                      

The legendary country singer earned two Guinness World Records, one for most decades with a Top 20 hit on the US Country Songs chart, and another for the most hits on the U.S. Hot Country Songs chart by a female artist.

Parton, who turns 72 on Friday, earned her first top 20 entry with “Something Fishy” in 1967. A remastered version of “Jolene” with a capella group Pentatonix debuted at No. 18 on the list in 2016.

Her six decades on the charts beat out artists including George Jones, Elvis Presley and Reba McEntire.

"To receive these two Guinness World Records is so great. Joining so many wonderful singers and songwriters who have been honored this way feels so special to me,” the “9 to 5” singer said while accepting the awards in Nashville.
