Taylor Swift is #1 is a big way…
Dolly Parton is also #1 in another way…

No matter how you feel about her- she started in country music and she is now a worldwide superstar- Taylor Swift made history on the Billboard charts. She became the first artist ever to debut an album (Folklore) and single (“Cardigan”) at number-one in the same week.
Folklore tops the Billboard 200, while “Cardigan” was streamed 34 million times and leads all tracks on the Billboard Hot 100.
Folklore is the best-selling album in its first week since Taylor’s previous album release, Lover.

Dolly Parton’s Dollywood theme park in Tennessee was ranked in the Top 10 best amusement parks in the world, according to Travels’ Choice Best of Awards in 2020. Dollywood came in at #8. The list is based on reviews, ratings and savings. Disney’s Magic Kingdom ranked #1.
