I think Dolly Parton is one of the most beautiful people in the entire world. She’s smart, talented, and a real business woman. She has an awesome amusement park in Pigeon Forge, and Dixie Stampede – the best dinner theater anywhere! I have so much admiration for her. We all know Dolly had planned on being part of a waterpark in Nashville. But, that’s not going to happen now. Today I received the press release below, telling us that Dolly will not be part of a waterpark in Nashville. I’m sure her reasons are good ones. She’s just an awesome business woman. Here’s the release.
Dolly Parton – Iconic singer, songwriter, musician, actress and philanthropist – announced today that she will no longer be associated with the previously planned water park in Nashville.
"Gaylord makes decisions that they feel are good for their company and their stockholders and I have to make decisions based on what is best for me and the Dollywood Company," said Parton. "Governor Haslam, Mayor Dean, and all the folks in government have been great to work with. I really appreciate their support through this process."
"I think everyone knows I love Nashville and I hope the work we’ve already done will spark more family entertainment in Nashville," Parton added.
