Dolly Parton just turned 78 in January, but she isn’t slowing down at all. She released her first rock album last year. The legendary star has her hands in every aspect of entertainment – books, housewares, an upcoming cookbook, and more.

But did you know that the icon has a line of pet goods for your furry four-legged friend? The well-known dog lover sashayed into the pet apparel and accessories industry in 2022.

Dogs took over the runway last month for Dolly’s CBS special featuring embellished apparel from the Doggy Parton line. The special also featured performances by Dolly Parton, Lainey Wilson, and more.

If you missed it on TV, Dolly Parton’s Pet Gala is still available to stream on Paramount+.

Dolly Parton Shocks Fans In Rare Throwback

Despite the performer’s notoriously revealing outfits, some people were still outraged by her Thanksgiving Day performance. She headlined the halftime show at the Dallas Cowboys Vs. Washington Commanders game.

In true Dolly fashion, she took the stage in a barely-there Dallas Cowboys cheerleading uniform. But fans might be surprised to know that Dolly Parton didn’t always show so much skin. Nor did she always wear blonde wigs teased sky-high.

An old photo of the “I Will Always Love You” singer from early in her life resurfaced on a Reddit thread. “Dolly Parton 1960 (don’t know if this been posted before) She was immaculate,” the Redditor explained about the photo.

Born in 1946, Dolly would have been around 14 at the time the photo was taken. The fresh-faced beauty has her natural hair instead of a wig. It’s coiffed on top of her head like the style at the time.

Reddit users took to the comments to share their appreciation for the “9 to 5” singer:

  • She sure as he** don’t gotta worry about Jolene
  • Dolly is a national treasure.
  • She is such an absolute icon.

Dolly Parton has been a staple in the entertainment industry for over six decades. She’s been wearing blonde wigs nearly the entire time. It’s hard to imagine her as a young girl without a stitch of makeup, but that’s exactly what the throwback photo shows.

Does the iconic performer’s appearance at 14 surprise you, or have you seen the photo before? Share your thoughts in the comments.
