Dolly Parton escaped the struggles in her early life by using her creative and imaginative imagination. The songs she wrote were composed before she knew how to write and read. The first time she picked up a guitar was when she was 8 and began singing on an Knoxville Tenn radio station at age eleven. Gold Band Records is a small label that is independent. While she was popular in the local scene while she was at high school, her dreams were much bigger. The year 1964 was the day following her graduation from high-school her family moved to Nashville. Dumb Blonde, Something Fishy and Dumb Blonde both charted on Monument Records in 1967. Porter Wagoner began looking for new female vocalists for his television show that was syndicated about the same as the time. Parton joined RCA Records and then joined the Grand Ole Opry. She was hired in the year 1967. She quit Wagoner's act in 1974 when her solo hits such as Joshua Coat of Many Colors & Jolene oversold her collaborations. Parton composed "I I Will Never Forget You" to Wagoner soon after their split. The song hit No. 1 for the first time since 1974.
