Dolly Parton Officially Breaks 3 Guinness World Records


75-year-old Dolly Parton was just awarded three new Guinness World Records! Dolly broke the record for most hits on Billboard’s list, with 109 songs making it on the list over the years. She also won for the most decades (7) and most No.1 hits (25) on the Billboard US Hot Country Songs chart, both for a female artist. Dolly shared a statement about how excited she was to receive the awards.

She said, “This is the kind of stuff that really makes you very humble and very grateful for everything that’s happened. I had no idea that I would be in Guinness World Records this many times! I am flattered and honored. I’ve had a lot of people help me get here. Thanks to all of you and all of them for helping me have all of this.”
