Parton lauded for wildfire relief efforts
Country singer Dolly Parton has drawn a chorus of approval, not for her music this time, but for her efforts to help society.
The 71-year-old will get an award from the Academy of Country Music on Aug 23 for her work in supporting wildfire relief efforts. She has helped raise more than US$10 million (S$14 million) for families affected by the blazes.
