Early Life Dolly Parton
Parton was the fourth of twelve children when she was born in 1946. She was born in Sevier County, Tennessee. Her father grew tobacco. She would later say that her family was poor and that her father paid the doctor who helped deliver her with a bag of oatmeal. Music has always been a big part of her life, and many of her first performances were in church. During the Cas Walker Show on TV, Parton was a guest. Later, she was signed to the small Louisiana record company, Goldband Records. She moved to Nashville the day after she graduated from high school in 1964, so she could go to college. She started making money as a songwriter very quickly, which made her very happy. She worked with her uncle, Bill Owens, to write a number of top-songs.
According To Uswhispers
During the 1960s, Dolly signed with Monument Records when she was just 19 years old. She was first sold as a bubble gum pop singer. Her first pop songs didn't do well. Bill Phillips sang one of Dolly's country songs with Dolly on harmony, and it went to number six on the country charts. Monument Records finally saw the light and gave up their pop dreams for Dolly.
At number 24, Dolly's first single as a country artist was "Dumb Blonde." She didn't write this song, which is kind of funny. You can say it's one of the few songs that Dolly did not write during this time. Second single "Something Fishy" reached number 17.
