An internationally renowned superstar, the iconic and irrepressible Parton has contributed countless treasures to the world of music entertainment, penning classic songs such as â€œJolene,â€ â€œCoat of Many Colors,â€ and her mega-hit â€œI Will Always Love You.â€ With 1977â€™s crossover hit â€œHere You Come Again,â€ she successfully erased the line between country and pop music without noticeably altering either her music or her image. â€œIâ€™m not leaving country,â€ she said at the time, â€œIâ€™m just taking it with me.â€
