Quiz: How much do you know about Dolly Parton?

Test your knowledge of the iconic country star.

ACCLAIMED COUNTRY SINGER Dolly Parton has had a varied life and career, and she has been back in the headlines this week. 

She gave $1 million (€843,000) towards Covid-19 research which helped fund the Moderna coronavirus vaccine, which is 94.5% effective against Covid-19, according to early clinical trial results. 

Between this and a new Netflix holiday musical called Dolly Parton’s Christmas on the Square being released today, how could we resist a quiz on the country icon?
