In honor of the legendary singer-songwriter, actress, and all around Southern icon’s 72nd birthday, we wanted to take a look back at her (and her music) through the years. With more than 40 albums and nearly 800 songs spanning her six-decade-career, there’s a lot to choose from.
Here are seven of our favorite Dolly Parton performances ranging from 1970 to 2014 to bring a smile to your face and maybe even tempt you to put a teasing comb through your hair. Happy birthday, Dolly.
