Thirdly, Parton earned the most Top 10 entries on the U.S. Top Country Albums chart by a female artist. Diamonds & Rhinestones: The Greatest Hits Collection was her 48th Top 10 entry on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart.

After accepting the citations from Guinness World Records offcial adjudicator Michael Empric, Parton said, "I am humbled every time I receive a new Guinness World Record title."

Jack Johnson, Doobie Brothers & Brad Paisley To Headline BeachLife Ranch 2023

Jack Johnson, the Doobie Brothers and Brad Paisley are set to headline the upcoming BeachLife Ranch festival, scheduled to take place September 22 - 24 on the waterfront in Redondo Beach, California.

The Avett Brothers, Wynonna Judd, Blackberry Smoke, Shakey Graves, Bahamas, Keb' Mo', Midland, Yola and Amanda Shires are among other acts named in the lineup for the festival.

Shooter Jennings will present The Highwaymen Revival set at the festival, while Devon Allman and Donavon Frankenreiter are set to bring their "World Record Attempt: See It All American Tour" to Redondo Beach.

The festival co-founder and producer Allen Sanford said last year that the goal was to introduce the concept to the community and build awareness for the "coastal country" event.

"It's a difficult brand exercise," Sanford said of developing a second festival at one location. "It's still the same good time, still boutique catered to the consumer, not big lines, not crazy busy, just a different vibe more inspired by Central California, country/Americana and folk."

The inaugural BeachLife Ranch last year was topped by Brandi Carlile, The Lumineers and Dierks Bentley.
