Dolly Parton achieved much of her success in the late '60s and '70s as a solo artist and as a duet partner with country music superstar Porter Wagoner. Dolly still moved a lot of records in the 1980s, but sales for the country music giant tapered off in the '90s.
After 2000, Parton's career received new wings and she has been soaring ever since. There seems to be no stopping Dolly. Her career continues to rocket higher and higher and of course, if you've ever been to Pigeon Forge, Tennesee, you more than likely put Dollywood on your list of things to see. Parton has been a co-owner of the theme park since 1986.
In 1998, Nashville Business ranked Dolly Parton as the wealthiest country-music star. Dolly's estimated wealth is over $500 million.
