CHEROKEE, N.C. -- Dolly Parton will perform at the Harrah's Cherokee Casino on May 25.
An internationally renowned superstar, the iconic and irrepressible Parton has contributed countless treasures to the world of music entertainment, penning classic songs such as "Jolene," "Coat of Many Colors," and her mega-hit "I Will Always Love You."
With 1977's crossover hit "Here You Come Again," she successfully erased the line between country and pop music without noticeably altering either her music or her image.
"I'm not leaving country," she said at the time, "I'm just taking it with me."
Making her film debut in the 1980 hit comedy 9 to 5, Dolly earned rave reviews for her performance and an Oscar nomination for writing the title tune, along with her second and third Grammy Awards.
Starring roles in Steel Magnolias, Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, Rhinestone and Straight Talk followed, along with two network television series, made for television movies, network and HBO specials, and guest-starring roles in series television.
In 2006, Dolly earned her second Oscar nomination for "Travelin' Thru," which she wrote for the film Transamerica.
