Turning "No" To "No Problem"
Dolly Parton is a 7 time Grammy Award winning singer and songwriter. She is an author, an actress and philanthropist, known for giving back incredibly not just to her own community but nation-wide. In the 44 years since her national country chart debut, she remains the most successful female country music artist, with 25 number-one singles, a record for any female performer, and a record 42 top-10 country albums. She has the distinction of having performed on a top-5 country hit in each of the last five decades.
Even in spite of being one of the most successful country music artists of all time, Dolly couldn't get a major record label interested in releasing her 2008 album, Backwoods Barbie.
The message from the music industry was clear; has been tunes sung by a has-been! But Dolly, ever the optimist and always the entrepreneur, just created her own record lable to record her music!
"I wake up every day expecting things to be good," says Parton. "And if they're not, then I set out about trying to get it fixed. I try to live every day like it might be my last. I don't want to have to wake up, face God and say, "well, duh, I should have tried!"
