Meet Patrick Parkey and Harrell Gabehart the proud owners of the worlds largest collection of Dolly Parton memorabilia.

Die hard Dolly fans Parkey and Gabehart have spent years amassing the 'million piece' collection which they keep in their 2,500 sq ft Tennessee mountain home.

The couple own everything from mannequins which were 'molded to fit Parton’s correct anatomical measurements' to outfits, autographs,t shirts and lifesize standees. 

They estimate that they own at least 50 or more full Dolly outfits along with around 20 of her wigs. The collection is so large it would take visitors three hours to see the whole thing. 

The couples dream came true in 2011 when Dolly Parton came to see the collection  for herself-urging the pair to make the collection available to the public. 

There are now plans to turn the collection into a museum based in Nashville, to honor the beginning of the singers career.
