Since then, she has become a country music legend, garnering countless Grammy Awards, American Music Awards, Country Music Awards and has sold more than 100 million albums as a solo artist.

Her huge discography includes hits such as “9 to 5,” “Jolene,” and  “I Will Always Love You,” which Whitney Houston famously covered in The Bodyguard. Parton’s original version of the latter, released in 1974 following the end of her professional partnership with mentor Porter Wagoner, has brought in millions of dollars in sales. She wrote the song after telling Wagoner she was leaving his show because she didn’t get a pay raise, starting her life as a boss who always demands what she’s worth.

“And I said, ‘Well this has already been a hit for me and this is in my publishing company and I can’t give you half of it’, and he said, ‘Well then we can’t do it,’” Parton told CNBC in 2016.

She recalled turning down Elvis as being one of “those first really hard business decisions I had to make,” but didn’t regret doing so. Parton later attributed her business-savvy skills to her father in a 2003 interview with Rolling Stone.
