Parton recently made the world record for the most studio albums released by a female country singer as she has released a total of 65 albums. Now, she holds the world record for the top 10 entries on the U.S. top country albums chart for a female artist and the number is 48. Her latest album “Diamonds & Rhinestones: The Greatest Hits Collection,” which was released in 2022 also made it to the billboard charts. Finally, Parton made the world record for the longest time span between number-one hits on the U.S. top country albums chart for a female artist. Her first of eight albums to be number one on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart was "New Harvest... First Gathering," released in May 1977, and her latest album was “A Holly Dolly Christmas” on Oct. 17, 2020. And the time span between them will shock you: 43 years and 156 days.



 

Patron was honored with the new record titles at a ceremony in Nashville, Tennessee.
