Dolly Parton’s Top Billboard Hot Country Songs Hits

Dolly Parton, a member of both the Country Music Hall of Fame and the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, has been crafting hits for more than six decades, starting with her 1959 debut single, “Puppy Love.”

Over the years, her recordings have lit up Billboard‘s charts in a variety of genres — namely country, naturally, but also bluegrass, CCM and rock. And of course, it was the East Tennessee native who brought to life “I Will Always Love You,” which she had a country hit with as a solo artist (twice — once solo and once and as a duet with Vince Gill), while Whitney Houston’s soaring, soul-stirring version became an enduring pop classic.

As a recording artist, Parton has lobbed tender ballads and jaunty uptempo tracks to the top of the charts, with solo performances as well as enduring collaborations with artists including Kenny Rogers, Billy Ray Cyrus and both Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris (via her work on the acclaimed Trio albums). Most recently, she turned her love of music toward rock classics with her album Rockstar, working with legends including Paul McCartney and Elton John.

But through the decades, Parton has always made country music her musical heartbeat and homebase. Thus, below, we count down Parton’s biggest Billboard hits on the Hot Country Songs chart.

Dolly Parton’s Biggest Billboard Hits chart is based on actual performance on the weekly Hot Country Songs chart through May 11, 2024. Songs are ranked based on an inverse point system, with weeks at No. 1 earning the greatest value and weeks at lower ranks earning less. Due to changes in chart methodology over the years, eras are weighted to account for different chart turnover rates over various periods.
