Dolly Parton – Estimated net worth: $500 million
Parton has been a hit-factory nearly her entire adult life, and she continues to produce a massive cashflow. Not only is she still touring consistently, she’s dipped her toes into TV and film, from ‘9 to 5’ to ‘Coat of Many Colors’ the NBC biopic. Oh, and she owns the rights to ‘I Will Always Love You’, so every time you hear that she’s making money. And then there’s Dollywood, a dive-southern version of Disneyland that attracts millions of fans each and every year.
