Stella is one of 12 siblings born to Robert Lee Parton Sr. and wife Avie Lee Caroline Owens, including Dolly who is three years older than Stella. When she was seven, she teamed up with her sister and performed on a television program, and two years later she was heard on radio. Also, Stella teamed up with two other sisters, Willadeene and Cassie to form a gospel group, and appeared in several commercials in Tennessee. When she was in high school, Stella focused even more on music, and began writing songs. She then moved to Washington and found job as a performer at the Hillbilly Heaven Club. After a few years she moved to Nashville and founded her own record label, Soul, Country And Blues.

Her debut album came out in 1975, entitled “I Want to Hold You in My Dreams Tonight”, and it reached No. 24 on the US Country chart, encouraging her to continue to work on her music – the title single reached No. 9, which only increased the sales of the album, and therefore increased her net worth. After this success, she signed a contract with Elektra Records, and released three albums for the label – “Country Sweet”, which reached No. 27, “Stella Parton” (1978), reaching No. 38 and “Love Ya” (1979), which went uncharted. Due to her declining success, Stella left Elektra Records, and signed with the independent label Townhouse Records, but released only one album for the record house – “So Far, So Good” in 1982 – and then switched to Airborn Records, through which she also released one studio album, entitled “Always Tomorrow” in 1989.

She was largely inactive during the `90s, but released compilation albums including “Picture in a Frame” (1997) and “Anthology” (1998). She returned to the studio with the beginning of the 2000s, and released her seventh studio album “Appalachian Blues” in 2001 through Raptor Records. She released two more albums through the same label, “Appalachian Gospel” (2003), and “Testimony” in 2008, all of which increased her net worth.

Stella is also recognized as an actress; she made her debut in the popular TV series “Dukes of Hazzard” in 1979, and a year later appeared in the film “Cloud Dancer” (1980). Two decades later, she featured in Sheldon Larry`s drama film “The Color of Love: Jacey`s Story” (2000), and two years afterwards had the lead role in Scott A. Martin`s “Seven to Midnight”. Most recently, she appeared in Stephen Herek`s films about her sister Dolly – “Dolly Parton‘s Coat of Many Colors” (2015), and “Dolly Parton‘s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love” (2016).

Apart from her success in the entertainment industry, Dolly owns a consulting firm – Attic Entertainment Artist Development & Entertainment Consulting – where she teaches people about make-up, hair, stage acting and wardrobe techniques. Furthermore, she has published cookbooks, “Church Bazaars” and “State Fairs”, all adding to her net worth.

Thanks to her contribution to music, Stella has received numerous prestigious awards, including the Album of the Year and entertainer of the Year in 2006 given by the Alabama Country & Gospel Music Hall of Fame, Female Vocalist of the Year in 2004 by the Christian Country Music Association, and she was inducted into the American Old-Time Country Music Hall of Fame in 2006, among other awards.

Regarding her personal life, Stella has been married to Marvin Carroll Rauhoff since 1966; the couple has one child together.

Stella is known for her social efforts; she has been a spokesperson for several organizations, including Mothers Against Drunk Driving, and also served as National Honorary Country Music Ambassador to the American Cancer Society. Furthermore, Stella is a teacher of hair and make-up at Berea`s College New Opportunity School for women, in order to help women build-up their self-esteem, among other activities.
