Last week in the Country Shootout we featured Outlaw Country Artists. They were all males and it did so well, I thought we should try out female artists. This week in the Country Shootout we will feature Classic Country Female Artist. We will feature artist like Dolly Parton, Kitty Wells, Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Dottie West and Loretta Lynn. Our fist two competitors in the Country Shootout are Dolly Parton vs. Dottie West.

Dolly Parton has been in inspiration to young female artist for decades and continues to produce music and impress women and men across the nation. Dolly started her career early performing for the Grand Ole Opry at the young age of 13. Dolly Parton found success not only in performing songs but also in writing songs as well. After all of her songwriting success, Dolly found herself in the Songwriters Hall of Fame. She has also been inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame, Grammy Hall of Fame, Gospel Music Hall of Fame and many others. Here is her #1 hit 'Jolene'.
