Not at all surprising, Dolly Parton is probably one of the most charitable celebrities out there. This past Saturday, Parton was recognized for that giving heart of hers, when she was awarded with the first-ever Dolly Parton Excellence in Leadership Awards from the Country Music Hall of Fame Leadership Tennessee organization.  Dolly was recognized for much of her charitable work, including the work she put in to support victims of the devastating Gatlinburg wildfires in 2016, to the inspiration she has given millions through her Imagination Library, which provides books to children from birth to the beginning of high school.
