9. She’s Known Her Best Friend Since Third Grade
Parton has known her best friend, Judy Ogle, since the two first bonded in elementary school.

"Judy and I have been best friends for 64 years, since we were little kids. Our ­parents knew each other, we grew up together, we were like ­sisters, became best friends. She was very quiet; I was very outgoing. So we made perfect friends. We went all through school together," Parton told The Sun in an interview. "She went to the army when we graduated because she needed the insurance and she needed to help her family and I was trying to make it. As soon as she got out, she came to Nashville and we’ve been together ever since."
