Dollywood is open
Dolly Parton invited the world to Dollywood on Friday as she prepares to open her theme park today for another season. Friday was media day and she announced she will write the music for an upcoming movie based on the top selling novel “Dumplin”. It features an overweight young girl who builds her confidence by listening to Dolly's music. But Dolly also has other big plans...... a sequel to "9 to 5". She, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, plan a new movie addressing current issues including the pay disparity between men and women. This year's Festival of Nations at Dollywood runs through April 9 and features music and dancers from South Africa, Siberia, Spain, Ireland, the Caribbean, Ecuador and Germany. From April 11 till the 29th, the park will host award-winning artists from across several music genres, from Suzy Bogguss to The Blind Boys of Alabama. Bush's will present Barbeque and Bluegrass from May 25 till June 10, with a wide range of bluegrass music. From June 16 till August 5 the park will be open from 10 am till 10 pm. Then the Harvest Festival will bring Southern Gospel from September 28 till November 3. And the “Best Christmas Event at any theme park worldwide" is planned for November 10 through January 5.
