Dolly Parton has been recognized by Guinness World Records for having the most decades with a Top 20 hit on the U.S. Hot Country Songs chart.

The country star will be featured in the pages of the Guinness World Records 2018 edition where she will also be recognized for having the most hits on the U.S. Hot Country Songs chart by a female artist.

“To receive these two Guinness World Records is so great. Joining so many wonderful singers and songwriters who have been honoured this way feels so special to me,” Parton said to Guinness while the organization visited her in Nashville to present her with two certificates.

“You never know when you start out with your work how it’s going to turn out, but to have these two world records makes me feel very humbled and blessed!” she continued.

A video, released by Guinness, features Parton receiving the certificates and discussing her career.

“It’s a good feeling to know that I’ve had hit songs through all those decades. It makes me feel like I’m about 100 which it won’t be long until I am,” Parton jokes in the clip.
