Randy Parton, the brother of Dolly Parton, has died at the age of 67, the country star has announced.

Born Dec. 15, December 15, 1953, Randy Parton was one of 12 children raised by Avie Lee Parton and Robert Lee Parton in Sevierville, Tennessee.

"We are a family of faith and we believe that he is safe with God and that he is joined by members of the family that have gone on before and have welcomed him with joy and open arms", Parton said in a statement.

Parton described her brother as "a great singer, writer, and entertainer" and said he sang and played guitar and bass in her band for many years.

The musician, who duetted with his sister on her track Old Flames Can't Hold A Candle To You, was a familiar presence at her theme park Dollywood in Tennessee, where he headlined his own show.

His recording career included a 1982 cut of 'Roll On (Eighteen Wheeler),' which Randy Parton debuted two years before country band Alabama released a version that topped country charts.

Dolly spoke for the whole family as she finished the message saying: 'We will always love him and he will always be in our hearts'. Dolly Parton dedicated the song to her brother, releasing it on her "A Holly Dolly Christmas" record. "Outside was just an extension of our house and there was where we often ate, played games and music and did our chores".

"He was born around Christmas time and he was our Christmas baby", Parton told The Tennessean in 2020.

"I do have a birthday wish that I want to share with you".

"We'd have to rock him, take care of him, we had to diaper him too, which wasn't as much fun as a doll would have been I don't think".
