Dolly Parton is in the record book — the Guinness World Records, that is.
The iconic singer has been awarded three records as part of her career lasting more than half a century, People magazine reported.
Two of the accolades are new for the songwriter, singer and actress — she is now named the female singer with the most decades (seven) performance and most No. 1 hits (25) on the Billboard US Hot Country Songs chart for a woman.
She also broke her own record for most hits in the Billboard US Hot Country Songs with 109.
Parton also holds the record for most decades with a Top 20 hit on the US Hot Country Songs chart (6 years). She was honored in 2018, according to Guinness World Records.

“This is the kind of stuff that really makes you very humble and very grateful for everything that’s happened. I had no idea that I would be in Guinness World Records this many times! I am flattered and honored,” Parton said in an interview with Guinness World Records. “I’ve had a lot of people help me get here. Thanks to all of you and all of them for helping me have all of this.”
Parton started recording songs at the age of 10, but her first chart-topping hits were released in 1967 with “Something Fishy” and “Dumb Blonde,” according to the organization. Recently she’s been singing duets with singers such as Reba McEntire and Michael Bublé, People magazine reported.
Parton is also not resting on her laurels. She’s going to appear in the final season of the Netflix show “Grace and Frankie,” alongside her “9 to 5″ co-stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, People magazine reported.
Parton is also working with author James Patterson on a novel “Run, Rose, Run” and will release an album based on the book next year.
