Dolly Parton keeps proving she's one of the most beloved celebs on the planet - and that she has no intention of slowing down the older she gets.
Dolly was just presented with three plaques representing three new world records recognized by the Guinness Book Of World Records: most studio albums released by a female singer, the longest span of No. 1 hits on the US Top Country Albums chart for a female artist, and the most top 10 entries on the US Top Country Albums chart for a female artist. Let's break them down:
- Most studio albums released by a female singer - Dolly has released 65 studio albums starting with her 1967 debut "Hello, I'm Dolly" up to 2022's "Run, Rose, Run." And that's not counting her upcoming "Rockstar" album set to be released this fall.
- The longest span of No. 1 hits on the US Top Country Albums chart for a female artist - her first of eight albums to top Billboard's Top Country Albums chart was "New Harvest…First Gathering," released in May 1977, and her latest chart-topping album was "A Holly Dolly Christmas," released in October 2020, a span of 43 years and 156 days between number one records, ranking her third overall behind male country artists Johnny Cash, whose number one records spanned 50 years and 91 days, and Merle Haggard, who had 48 years and 192 days between his number one records.
- Most top 10 entries on the US Top Country Albums chart for a female artist - Her 2022 compilation album "Diamonds & Rhinestones: The Greatest Hits Collection," was Dolly's 48th top 10 entry on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart.
"I am humbled every time I receive a new Guinness World Records title," Dolly said. "I share these three new honors with my fans, who have allowed me to enjoy such a long career."
The country legend now has TEN Guinness World Records titles: in addition to the more recent three, she also has records for the most decades with a Top 20 hit on the US Hot Country Songs chart , most No. 1 hits on the US Hot Country Songs chart by a female artist , most decades on the US Hot Country Songs chart for a female artist , most hits on the US Hot Country Songs chart by a female artist , the longest span of number one hits on the US Hot Country Songs chart, first country singer to get the EGOT nominations (that is for an Emmy, Grammy, Oscars and Tony award) , and most Grammy nominations for a female country artist.
