Dolly Parton’s 2020 was like most of ours in that she stayed behind closed doors, but where she differs is all the stuff she accomplished in a year when most of the world slowed down.
Parton made headlines when she donated $1 million to the Moderna Vaccine, but then she just kept working and working. She released a Christmas album, a Christmas movie, wrote a song inspired by the pandemic, released a detailed book of the many songs she has written, and of course, kept her Dollywood theme park in East Tennessee alive despite having to be closed for almost a year.
Forbes listed Dolly’s worth at $350 million. She joins other women on the 2021 list including supermodel Cindy Crawford.
