When iconic songstress Dolly Parton was chosen for the honor of a lifetime achievement award in 2016, she reminisced her first recorded and co-written song “Puppy Love.”


The legendary Dolly Parton has won many prestigious accolades in her lifetime. The Willie Nelson Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to her at the CMA Awards in 2016.

A day before the award ceremony, she chose to share the happy news with her fans and followers on social media, sharing a touching post that reached back to her roots.

Parton shared her first recorded song Puppy Love, which she had recorded at the tender age of 13. The song, which was co-written by Parton, is an innocent ode to young and pure love.

She attributes the beginning of her musical career to that song, and her journey until she got her first break was not an easy one.


According to Country Music Family, Parton was raised in a rural neighborhood in Tennessee, where her entire family lived in a small cabin.

She was the fourth child among 12 children, and her father, who worked at a construction site, was the only earning member of the family.

Despite her humble background, she persistently pursued her love for music, and her voice eventually entered the music scene through recording studios.

Puppy Love was the first milestone in the young Dolly’s musical aspirations – recorded by a local music label in Louisiana, Goldband Records.


Although she went on to make a remarkable career as a singer, songwriter, actress and more, she never forgot her roots and how far she had come from the tiny home in Tennessee.

As a result, she is an active giver, participating in several charities, including Imagination Library.

The CMA has defined that the Willie Nelson Lifetime Award as one given to an iconic artist who has reached the pinnacle of fame and recognition in the genre of country music.

With several honors from American Music Awards, Academy of Country Music, Grammy Awards and the prestigious induction into the Country Music Hall of Fame, she was the fifth musician to receive the award.
