Dolly Parton is one of the most recognizable people in country music, with hits like “Jolene” and “I Will Always Love You.” She’s collaborated with numerous artists over the years and made waves when she partnered with Tammy Wynette and Loretta Lynn in 1993 for their “Honky Tonk Angels” album. It went on to achieve certified gold status about two months after its release.

“Honky Tonk Angels” also took the number six spot on the Billboard Country Album chart and number 42 on the Billboard 200 chart, according to Parton’s website. The album included the hit song “Silver Threads and Golden Needles,” which received a Grammy nomination for Best Country Vocal Collaboration, despite getting little radio time, per Taste of Country.

In addition to their collaboration on the album, Lynn appeared on an episode of Parton’s TV show, “The Dolly Show,” according to Country Rebel. The pair sang a medley of Lynn’s greatest hits, including “Coal Miner’s Daughter,”You Ain’t Woman Enough (To Take My Man),” and “Don’t Come Home A Drinkin‘.” Parton and Lynn spent plenty of time in the studio together, but do they have a relationship outside of their music?
