Dolly Parton’s name resonates with people of all ages and the star has done a lot to make a name for herself.
The nine-time Grammy award winner has been able to garner massive abundance, which is reflected in her whopping net worth.
“A lot of people say that’s Whitney’s song, and I always say, ‘That’s fine, she can have the credit, I just want my cash,'” Dolly told Today in 2015.
According to The Heavy, Dolly made about $10 million off the song in the ’90s as Whitney’s rendition claimed the No1 spot on the ‘Billboard Hot 100’ for 14 weeks straight.
The songstress also has a theme park named Dollywood in her name, which generates more than $118 million in state and local tax revenue, and has an economic impact of more than $1.5 billion.
Moreover, Dolly also has philanthropic endeavours minting in money for her. Just recently, she pledged $1 million to Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee to support a research to find a cure for coronavirus. “Keep the faith,” she said.
Owing to all this, Dolly Parton’s net worth is a whopping $600 million, as reported by Celebrity Net Worth.
