Dolly Parton. Nathan Congleton/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty Images Former President Barack Obama said that his administration made a mistake by not awarding Dolly Parton the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the country's highest civilian honor.

The Leadership and Management Styles of Dolly Parton

As with everyone else in the world, the pandemic destroyed my morning routine.

Holiday music: 8 top new Christmas albums to hear in 2020
