Dolly Parton famously rose out of poverty to go on to become one of the greatest stars in country music history. Her childhood story was recently turned into the popular television movie Coat of Many Colors, which is based on a song Parton wrote about a coat her mother made for her.
Now, Parton is preparing to kick off her first major tour in 25 years, and has a bunch of other projects on the table. After the success of Coat of Many Colors, she has also started plans to create more movies based on her hit songs.
