Regardless of your taste in music, you’ve got to love Dolly Parton. It’s almost un-American not to. The woman transcends music genres. And that hair! That voice! Those roller coasters!
Dolly’s looks and her voice might have gotten her to where she is today, but it’s her theme park in Gatlinburg, Tenn. – Dollywood – that will remaining a lasting symbol of her greatness. OK, fine. Maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but in all seriousness, Dollywood is a theme park that’s as unique and exciting as the woman after whom it was named.
Gorgeous setting in the Smoky Mountains? Check. Live bluegrass music throughout the park? Check. Roller coasters? Yep, it’s got plenty of those as well. And if you’re still not sold, perhaps this will get you: There are concerts performed by a Dolly Parton hologram. Watch the video above to see 10 reasons why Dollywood is not your average theme park.
Dolly, we will always love you.
