4. Dolly Wrote Her First Song When She Was 5 Years Old
The first song Dolly Parton ever wrote was about a doll her parents made her out of corn husks. She wrote it when she was 5 years old.

"Daddy took the husks and got a hot poker in the fire and made some little eye holes in this cob,” Parton said in a Billboard conversation with singer and songwriter Linda Perry. "Mama put the little tassels back on it and made it a little shuck dress. I loved that little doll."
