Dolly Parton has been entertaining us for decades. It was pretty clear from the beginning of her career that she was going places. She was always optimistic, but she wasn’t about to be taken for a fool. That was evident in her 1967 hit, “Dumb Blonde.” This song was her first country hit and it’s a rather appropriate first-of-many hits for the country legend.
We’ve all heard dumb blonde jokes. Dolly hit back at all these jokes proving that there is nothing dumb about her! She wasn’t about to let her former love interest stereotype her as being stupid because of the color of her hair.
Dolly’s former love thought she’d sit around and pout after he left her, but that simply wasn’t the case! In the empowering song, she reminds him that she’s nobody fool and that blondes have more fun. She wasn’t about to waste her tears on someone who thinks she’s dumb.
Watch her performance on “The Bobby Lord Show” in the video below:
Dolly looks a little different than she did in 1967, but her petite frame, curvy figure, and big blonde hair has remained a staple throughout her career! Even at 21, it was easy to see that Dolly Parton was going to have a long-standing career in country music.
What a fun song! It reached 24 on the country chart to help begin Dolly’s solo career.
Her hair appears to be defying gravity! It’s hard to decide which is bigger: Dolly’s talent or her hair! Big hair has been a signature of Dolly’s for decades.

And Dolly hasn’t slowed down since 1967, either. Recently, she donated a cool $1 million for the Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt to build its second-floor butterfly garden:
