This year, Dolly Parton will make history.

Over two decades after receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Parton’s name will be on an iconic star once again – this time, alongside two other famous names.

According to WATE News, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the Walk of Fame Selection Committee revealed their latest selections on Monday (June 25). In the recording category, the committee chose a group called “Trio” which is made up of Parton, Linda Ronstadt, and Emmylou Harris.  thanks to their hit 1987 album Trio.

Parton shared a video on her social media accounts thanking the committee for choosing her to be immortalized with her best friends Ronstadt and Harris.

In the video, Parton reveals that she was told that she is the first female this century to have two stars on the Walk of Fame, which she says is “natural” because she, as she says, “likes to do things in pairs…if you know what I mean.”

No word on when the unveiling ceremony will take place, but we can’t wait. Congratulations to Dolly, as well as Emmylou and Linda, on this wonderful accomplishment!

Watch the three ladies perform “To Know Him Is to Love Him,” a song off their Trio album, below.
