Country singer Dolly Parton is adding another major honor to her already 'bedazzled' list of lifetime achievements. The Federal Bureau of Investigation has recognized Parton as a distinguished community leader.

The award honors Parton's 'Dollywood Foundation', which donated a total of $9 Million dollars to victims of the Gatlinburg, Tennessee wildfires in 2016 through the "My People Fund."

Parton couldn't attend the award ceremony at the FBI headquarters in person. But the singer sent a video message thanking and praising the bureau.

"So many thanks again, and remember that [sings] I will always love you!"
