May 20, 1977: Dolly Parton is in London.

In advance of her 75th birthday on January 19, 2021, Dolly Parton said that she wouldn’t mind appearing on the cover of Playboy again.

The country star appeared on the cover of Playboy in 1978 wearing the classic Playboy Bunny suit and ears, with her trademark bust being the pictorial focus. She was 32 years old at the time. The singer is the most successful country singer of all time, and the sixth richest singer in the world. Her net worth is estimated to be at $600 million but she was born “dirt poor” in a one room house, one of 12 children. Is her unforgettable appearance the secret to her success?

Here’s a look at Dolly Parton’s Playboy cover and how people on social media are responding to her best looks through the ages:
