Dolly Parton is a world-class actress, best-selling author, dedicated philanthropist and a savvy businesswoman who’s been charting her own course for decades. But before life in the spotlight, Parton lived a humble life in the Smoky Mountains. This Saturday at 8/7c, Great American Country’s Backstory gives you an inside look at Parton’s rise to fame and her myriad endeavors as a country music star.

Many people know Parton for her music, but Dollywood is almost as much of an institution as Parton herself, especially in East Tennessee. Her theme and water parks attract thousands of visitors and celebrities every year. HGTV’s own Property Brothers visited in April with their other brother, J.D. Scott.

Whether she’s on stage, in the studio or making appearances at Dollywood, Parton never forgets her less-than-glamorous childhood. Tune in to Backstory on Saturday, August 2 at 8/7c for the complete story about country music’s sweetheart, Dolly Parton.
