Kristin Chenoweth Evokes Dolly on Opry Debut

Song salutes her hero

Kristin Chenoweth gave a musical salute to one of her heroes, Dolly Parton, as the award-winning actress and Broadway star made her Grand Ole Opry debut, Saturday night (Sept. 17), at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville.

Kristin, best known for her television work on Glee and Broadway plays such as Wicked, is making her entry into country music with her just-released album, Some Lessons Learned. After an introduction from Steve Wariner, Kristin took the stage and received a hearty round of applause from the Opry audience. “This is such an honor to be here on this stage,” an emotional Kristin said. “It’s a lifelong dream. What can I say?”

She performed two songs from the album, “Fathers and Daughters” and her salute to Dolly, the clever and upbeat “What Would Dolly Do.”
