Even two weeks after Dolly Parton returned to America from Europe, where she performed to sold out shows, Dolly is making headlines with the continued growth in album sales of Blue Smoke The Best Of.

In its seventh week since release, Dolly, once again, made history as Blue Smoke The Best Of climbs the Official UK chart to Number 2, her highest ever album chart position.

Dolly says,

Wow, Number 2!, I am so excited.  They say when you are Number 2, you try harder. Thanks to all the fans out there, as this would not be possible without all of your love and support.  Thanks again!

Dolly remains the most honored female country performer of all time. She has achieved 25 RIAA certified gold, platinum and multi-platinum awards, and had 25 songs reach Number 1 on the Billboard Country charts, a record for a female artist.

She has 42 career top 10 country albums and she has 110 career charted singles over the past 40 years. All-inclusive sales of singles, albums, hits collections, paid digital downloads and compilation usage during her Hall of Fame career have topped a staggering 100 million records worldwide.
