Country music entertainer Dolly Parton appears twice in the 'Guinness World Records 2018 Edition.' More on the honor here!

Country music icon Dolly Parton can add two more achievements to her long list of accomplishments— two entries in the 2018 Guinness World Records for ‘Most Decades with a Top 20 Hit on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart’ and ‘Most Hits on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart by a Female Artist.’

“To receive these two Guinness World Records is so great,” Parton shared in a press release. “Joining so many wonderful singers and songwriters who have been honored this way feels so special to me. You never know when you start out with your work how it’s going to turn out, but to have these two world records makes me feel very humbled and blessed!”

The Tennessee native earned her first Top 20 hit on the country chart in late 1967 with “Something Fishy.” Fans can find Parton featured in the Guinness World Records 2018 Edition, which is now available for purchase.

Watch Dolly accept her framed certificates and talk about her outstanding country music career in the following video!

Aw, Dolly is the best. She is always quick with a joke— this time about her age— and is always willing to recognize others such as country star George Jones. The songstress also revealed that “Coat of Many Colors” is her personal favorite song from her career.

Watch Dolly perform “Coat of Many Colors” on The Voice in 2015 below.

“Coat Of Many Colors” Lyrics

Back through the years
I go wonderin’ once again
Back to the seasons of my youth
I recall a box of rags that someone gave us
And how my momma put the rags to use
There were rags of many colors
Every piece was small
And I didn’t have a coat
And it was way down in the fall
Momma sewed the rags together
Sewin’ every piece with love
She made my coat of many colors
That I was so proud of
As she sewed, she told a story
From the bible, she had read
About a coat of many colors
Joseph wore and then she said
Perhaps this coat will bring you
Good luck and happiness
And I just couldn’t wait to wear it
And momma blessed it with a kiss

My coat of many colors
That my momma made for me
Made only from rags
But I wore it so proudly
Although we had no money
I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
My momma made for me

So with patches on my britches
Holes in both my shoes
In my coat of many colors
I hurried off to school
Just to find the others laughing
And making fun of me
In my coat of many colors
My momma made for me

And oh I couldn’t understand it
For I felt I was rich
And I told them of the love
My momma sewed in every stitch
And I told ’em all the story
Momma told me while she sewed
And how my coat of many colors
Was worth more than all their clothes

But they didn’t understand it
And I tried to make them see
That one is only poor
Only if they choose to be
Now I know we had no money
But I was rich as I could be
In my coat of many colors
My momma made for me
Made just for me

Congrats to Dolly! Share this news with other country music fans!
