Dolly Parton celebrates 74th birthday this weekend

Dolly Parton’s in her mid-70’s now, but she’s not slowing down. If anything, it feels like she's gaining new fans.

She's the focus of a popular new podcast from the longtime Radiolab host Jad Abumrad, and she's the inspiration behind the Netflix series "Dolly Parton's Heartstrings."

Here in the Twin Cities, there's a tribute concert Friday at the Turf Club in St. Paul. You're out of luck if you're looking for tickets, though. It's totally sold out.
