July 19, 2011 |  8:40 am

Dolly Parton is headed to the Hollywood Bowl on July 22-23. She's the latest in a long line of country acts to perform there. Patsy Cline, Garth Brooks and Carrie Underwood did too.

Dolly Parton will play the Hollywood Bowl on Friday and Saturday, her first full concerts at the hillside amphitheater in a career that has spanned nearly half a century. The news prompted Pop & Hiss to take a look back at some of the country artists who have performed at the storied venue during its 90 seasons. Click here, or on the photo of Dolly above, to see a gallery of some highlights.
