The NFL's Tennessee Titans are getting ready for the biggest game in franchise history, but there is one thing that is more important in town today....and that is Dolly Parton's birthday! So, the team sent their country legend a birthday message before the big game.
"Happy Birthday @DollyParton ! Let's do it for Tennessee!" the Titans tweeted this morning right about the time they were stapping it up for warmups.
Dolly Parton turned 74-years-old today, but even though Nashville is preparing for war against the Kansas City Chiefs in a few hours, they must pay their respect to the queen before starting the game.

Dolly Parton....Living Legend
"Imagine the obstacles Dolly Parton’s overcome? Her dad was illiterate, she’s given away 130 million books. Built Dollywood, after warned it would bankrupt her. She employs 85% of her hometown. She gave 900 families $10k to rebuild after the Smokey Mt. Fires. We need more Dollies," one fan tweeted.
Another added, "Happy birthday to the one & only, the queen DOLLY PARTON 👸🏼💖🎉From growing up with 11 siblings in a 1 bedroom cabin at the base of the Smoky Mountains with nothing but a dream... To become one of the greatest songwriters, performers, & businesswoman in history."
Dolly Parton is a living legend, and one of the most successful country artists of all time, and on her birthday fans are pointing out just how good she really is...
Here Is How Good She Really Is!
One person tweeted, "Happy Birthday to Dolly Parton! She has 25 songs reach #1 on the Billboard country music charts, a record for a female artist. She has 41 top 10 country albums and 110 charted singles over the past 40 years and still going strong."
Dolly still lives in Brentwood, Tennesse with her husband, Dean. The couple has been married since Parton was only 18, and they have been hitched for 53 years!
Her husband doesn't make very many public appearances but was seen recently out near the couple's home after years of not being seen.
Dolly's Husband Finally Seen Publicly After Years...
In June 2016, the couple renewed their wedding vows in celebration of their 50th anniversary.
"If I had it to do all over, I'd do it all over again, and we did. I'm dragging him kicking and screaming into the next 50 years. Wish us luck. I never really felt like I had the wedding that we really wanted. He got all dressed up and I got all dressed up. Fifty years is a long time for anything, and I felt that we needed to do something to commemorate this. It’s been a good 50 years and I don’t know how many more years we’ll have left," Dolly said of the event.
