When you talk about legendary country stars, Dolly Parton always makes the top of the list. She has built her career on a never-ending stream of hit songs, tear-jerking movies (hello Steel Magnolias), and of course, famous duets with country and pop stars alike. Everybody loves Dolly!
Even after 50+ years in the music industry, she's still the same Tennessee sweetheart who brought us classics like "Coat of Many Colors" (1971), "Lost Forever in Your Kiss" (1972), "Touch Your Woman" (1972), and "Jolene" (1973). Today, the queen of country music turns 71 years old and with that, we're breaking out our old Dolly Parton albums for a walk down memory lane.

The songstress, who even has her own Dollywood theme park in her native Tennessee, has never been one to play it safe when it comes to her career.

Scroll down to watch some of her most memorable duets, from "Jolene" with her goddaughter Miley Cyrus, to "Islands in the Stream," with her one of her most famous duet partners, Kenny Rogers.
