Throwback: Happy 76th Birthday, Dolly Parton!

January is rather auspicious month in music history: 

I’m obsessed about music and to be honest, I dnd’t know that January 19 is a really busy day: Janis Joplin was born 79 years ago today. But another beloved national treasure Dolly Parton turns 76 — 76! — today. As I often say around here, we need — and should — give our legends their flowers while we have them around with us. Play some Janis. Then play some Dolly today. It’ll make your day and your life better, I promise.

So happy birthday, Dolly! May there be many, many, many more!
