June 7, 2010 – Dolly Parton Celebrates 25 Years of Dollywood

As Dolly Parton celebrates the 25th anniversary of her East Tennessee theme park, Dollywood, the legendary singer talks with Country Weekly on the milestone occasion. Dollywood welcomes more than 2 million visitors each year, but Dolly admits that she was concerned about attendance on her opening night. “It’s like when you’re young and have a birthday party or something and you worry yourself to death, afraid nobody’s going to show up,” Dolly tells Country Weekly. Now, 25 years later, Dolly says that the park is “a dream come true, and it’s bigger and better than I ever dreamed
it would be.”
