Dolly Parton came from a musical family
Dolly Parton has won many awards and acclamations over the years. She even received nominations for her acting. Most would agree that Dolly had a successful career. Yet, the singer still doesn’t think it’s enough.
Earlier this year, Dolly Parton trended on social media after her initial reaction to being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. She said that she was “humbled” by the honor, but she felt that she didn’t deserve it. However, Dolly will be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame after all.
In a previous interview, Dolly Parton revealed the secret behind her success. It had more to do with her personality than her talent. She came from a musical family of 11 siblings. Even though all of them have musical talent, she had the ambition to become a famous musician.

“It’s just that I think I’ve taken it farther,” Dolly Parton told NPR in 2010. “I don’t know that I’m near as good as some of the others, but I’ve been more willing to sacrifice and work a little harder than some of the others might have been willing, you know, to do just because they wanted to have a family and do other things. But there’s a lot of talent in this family.”
As usual, Dolly remained humble about her talent. She just believed in herself and had the confidence to share her talent. The singer has no plans of slowing down anytime soon. Her drive has established her as a music legend that spans decades.
