Country legend Dolly Parton now has one more reason to be excited. Her song, ‘Coat of Many Colors’, has been officially added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry. The LOC described her song by saying it “affectionately recounts an impoverished childhood in the hills of Tennessee that was made rich by the love of her family.”
Parton’s song is in fine company this year. Along with her song, other artist who music was added to the registry this year include: Prince, Donna Summer, The Grateful Dead, and Patsy Montana. Sugarhill gang’s iconic song, ‘Rappers Delight’ and Parliament’s ‘Mothership Connection’ also made the list this year, along with “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
