Double Emmy awards for Dolly

Dolly Parton received her first two Emmy awards Saturday night (Jan. 20) at the Midsouth Regional Emmy ceremony at the Music City Center in Nashville, both focused on her work giving back to those in need. Parton, who was first nominated for an Emmy in 1978, is the only country artist to have received nods from the Oscars, Emmys, Tonys, Golden Globes and Grammys.
Parton was awarded the Best Community Service program trophy for her Smoky Mountains Rise telethon, which raised more than $13 million dollars for her My People Fund, to help those affected by the horrific mountain wildfires across East Tennessee last year.
The National Association of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) Midsouth also recognized the legend’s lifetime of giving back with the Governor’s Award. In her acceptance, Parton noted that she is most proud of her efforts on behalf of Dollywood, the Dollywood Foundation, including the Imagination Library, the My People Fund and Mountain Tough.
