.
Dolly Parton's hit song "Coat Of Many Colors" has been added to the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry.

One of 25 recordings that are selected each year that are deemed "historically, culturally or aesthetically significant," "Coat Of Many Colors" now brings the Registry's total number of recordings to 350.

The Congress said "Coat Of Many Colors" "affectionately recounts an impoverished childhood in the hills of Tennessee that was made rich by the love of her family."

Dolly joins an esteemed group of songwriters this year including Patsy Montana, Donna Summer, the Grateful Dead and Prince plus historical recordings of former American slaves (recorded in 1930), Leonard Bernstein, "A Charlie Brown Christmas," Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight" and Parliament's "Mothership Connection."
