Collection Dolly Parton and the Roots of Country Music

Dolly Parton Discography

This discography lists Dolly Parton's releases in roughly chronological order. It does not include recordings in which she is a guest artist, but only those for which she was one of the principle performers. Also, it does not include every compilation (such as greatest hits collections), reissue, or limited-pressing promotional item.

Italicized titles designate full-length albums (LPs) or, if so indicated, CDs. All other items are singles or EPs (Extended Plays). Collaborations with Porter Wagoner are indicated by "w/PW."
