Dolly Parton has succeeded in adding another feather to her overloaded cap. She has earned two Guinness World Records for her chart-topping music thus adding another accolade to her long career. Guinness World Records awarded her the world record for “Most decades with a Top 20 hit on the US Hot Country Songs chart” as well as “Most hits on the US Hot Country Songs chart by a female artist."
The legendary singer has been on the TOP 20 list for six decades. She entered the TOP 20 way back in 1967 with the song ‘Something fishy” and her reign continued to 2016. She had released an updated version of “Jolene” recorded with Pentatonix.
She has successfully surpassed other well known country music icons, George Jones, Elvis Presley and Reba McEntire.
It’s also an honor which cannot be easily earned. Parton is will be holding to this honour for some time. That is only if someone topples her record,and that someone would need to have 73 consecutive top 20 hits. That’s not an easy feat to achieve.
