Dolly Parton named TPA's 2014
Headliner of the Year

NASHVILLE – Singer/Songwriter Dolly Parton has been named the 2014 Tennessee Headliner of the Year. The second annual award was presented by the Tennessee Press Association (TPA) February 6 in Nashville.

Link to the video of Dolly Parton's acceptance of the 2014 TPA Headliner of the Year Award

The Tennessee Headliner of the Year award recognizes the person or group that has generated the most positive press within the state over the course of the past year.

Publishers and editors of TPA member newspapers were encouraged to submit nominations for people who drove lots of positive press in 2014, and the Board of Directors made the final selection from among those nominations and announced the recipient in December.

The 2014 recipient is certainly one of the most widely recognized daughters of Tennessee. She is instantly recognized around the globe for her amazing talent, impressive rise to fame from her East Tennessee mountain beginnings, and of course her ongoing philanthropy. She pioneered a program right here in the Volunteer State that places a book in the homes of children beginning right at birth, and carries through each month until the time the child enters school -- all at no cost to the families that participate. This wonderful introduction to reading and the printed word has expanded throughout the country and beyond, and Newspapers were thrilled to help drive new parents to sign up for the program in 2004 when it was still just a pilot project.

News about her signature program, dubbed The Imagination Library, is one of the main reasons that this year's recipient of the Tennessee Headliner of the Year Award garnered so many positive headlines across our state.

Jeff Conyers, executive director of the Dollywood Foundation, accepted the award on her behalf. Parton provided a video-recorded acceptance.
