From Nashville to Hollywood, these Dolly Parton pictures prove that this one-of-a-kind icon has remained amazing throughout her 50 years in the spotlight.

If there was ever a Venus of rural Appalachia, Dolly Parton is it — and has been for decades. Indeed, it's obvious from these glamorous pictures of her why she is widely considered the country-western icon of our time.

For those who don't know what a musical marvel Parton is, she can play at least eight different instruments and has written hundreds of songs. Parton even managed to write two of her biggest hits, "Jolene" and "I Will Always Love You," on the very same day.

Her thoughtful narratives and enchanting arrangements have captivated audiences and inspired droves of other artists to sample and pay homage to her work.

It's easy to gloss over the fact that this Venus of Appalachia is a songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, prolific singer, producer, sometimes-actress, and businesswoman because — as these pictures of Dolly Parton show — her style is louder than her bragging. Parton's historically been humble about her career and is often even quick to remind interviewers about her meager beginnings.

But as these photographs of Dolly Parton illustrate, she has since become a total bombshell.
