Music Birthday: Dolly Parton

🔊🎉Today, January 19, 1946, Dolly Rebecca Parton was born in Locust Ridge, Tennessee. From her 1980 concept album, “9 to 5 and Odd Jobs,” the ‘9 to 5’ song has been sampled by many artists, including Aesop Rock’s ‘9-5ers Anthem,’ and Will Young’s ‘Switch it On.’ On the US Hot 100, ‘9 to 5’ is Parton’s best performer, with peak of no. 1. The Recording Industry Association of America has since certified ‘9 to 5’ platinum, and “9 to 5 and Odd Jobs” is gold.
