Dolly Parton, America’s ageless country music sweetheart, is celebrating the 30th anniversary of her Tennessee theme park, Dollywood.
As the namesake and focus of Dollywood, Dolly Parton made some special announcements on local news just before the park’s opening this weekend.
Dolly Parton revealed that the park will be making 30 major announcements this year in honor of the 30th anniversary. It seems a few of them have to do with a concert series starring some of her closest friends.
“We don’t know exactly who’s coming now, but we’ve put the word out so they can work it into their schedules. We’re going to be announcing some other big stars coming in really soon.”
She added, “They’ll be announcing several new things, they got surprises for the guests, and we got a whole lot of great things, so it’s going to be a whole year of celebration.”
The first will be Dolly Parton herself, and the series will reportedly end with none other than Kenny Rogers. They are hoping to raise money with the concert series for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library.
Another expected announcement will be about the new DreamMore Resort that will feature more than 300 rooms and hotel suites.
Dolly Parton also mentioned a new attraction for Dollywood.
“Supposedly it’s the most expensive one yet,” Dolly Parton said, “which means it will be the best one this year. That announcement is coming real soon.”
Amidst all of the excitement for Dollywood’s 30 year anniversary, Dolly Parton also had time to weigh in on the Eva Mendes sweatpants scandal.
Dolly Parton said, “I don’t think I’ll be getting a divorce anytime soon because I either wear tight pants or no pants.”
She added, “I’ve been married for 48 years, and I try to always fix up for him. I don’t want to go home and just be a slouch for him. We really have a good time. We plan our special little things, but we’re very comfortable with each other also, so if we did wear sweatpants that be okay.”
