[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dolly Parton[/lastfm], who is celebrating her 65th birthday today, will be among those music legends that will receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at The Grammys in Los Angeles February 13, airing on CBS. Dolly has been a musical influence to many singers that will be sitting in the audience on Grammy night including [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Shania Twain[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kellie Pickler[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Taylor Swift[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Carrie Underwood[/lastfm] and more.
Parton admits she’s sometimes taken aback by those who cite her as a hero.

Dolly just recently announced that she would be releasing a brand new album in 2011 called Better Day. She is also planning a world tour this year and filming a movie with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Queen Latifah[/lastfm] called Joyful Noise.
