(CNN) -- Tennessee will "Always Love" Dolly Parton.
Wednesday Governor Bill Lee signed a resolution recognizing the country music legend's contributions to children's literacy in the state.
Parson was born in Locust Ridge, Tennessee. She launched the program "Imagination Library" in 1995.
The program mails one book a month to a child until they reach kindergarten.
The governor says because of Parton, more than 152 million books have been distributed to nearly 2 million kids.
Parton state the "Imagination Library" was inspired by her own father's inability to read.
