Taking a look through the library, there are some hits from some of her most well-known albums like “For God And Country,” which came out in 2003, the 2001 album “Little Sparrow” and songs from her live album “Live and Well” in 2004.

The “Jolene” hitmaker has been actively sending messages of inspiration and thanking those working on the frontlines during the pandemic. Most recently, she announced her donation of $1 million to Vanderbilt for research being done to find a cure for COVID-19.

“My longtime friend Dr. Naji Abumrad, who’s been involved in research at Vanderbilt for many years, informed me that they were making some exciting advancements towards research of the coronavirus for a cure,” Parton wrote in a message she shared.
