Rachel Parton George

Rachel Parton George is a star in her family’s kitchens—her sister Dolly will be the first to say so. The youngest of twelve children born into what proved to be a musical family from East Tennessee, she followed her siblings who—like Dolly—found their ways onto concert stages far and wide. In her teens she began performing as part of her family’s musical group, and became a songwriter in her own right. Other entertainment opportunities followed, including a starring role in the TV comedy 9 to 5, reprising her sister’s role from the movie of the same name. Retiring from performing to fulfill her desire to have and raise a family, Rachel is an essential member of her sister’s team, serving in an executive role that supplements various endeavors. An avid cook and self-professed collector of recipes and cookbooks, Rachel makes her home in Franklin, Tennessee.
