Dolly Parton Receives $100 Million Bezos Charity Award

From a Washington Post story by Ben Brasch headlined “From ‘9 to 5’ to $100 million, Dolly Parton receives Bezos charity award”:

From singing barefoot on the front porch of her Tennessee mountain home to cracking jokes onstage beside a billionaire who had a nine-digit sum for her, Dolly Parton has always followed her heart.

And the Queen of Country has followed her heart to become many things — a top contributor to the American songbook, a brilliant vocalist, an Island in the Stream — but above all, she’s a giver.
