Mark your calendars for October 12, 2019. The historic date will be Dolly Parton’s 50th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member, and the Opry just announced Dolly Week to honor Parton’s great achievement.
Says Parton, “It was always my dream to be on the Opry. I actually got to sing on the Grand Ole Opry when I was about ten years old. I officially became a member back in 1969 and I cannot believe next year I will celebrate fifty proud years of being a member of the Grand Ole Opry! They call it the ‘Mother Church’ because the old Ryman was a church, but it’s sacred to me, wherever it goes – the church of my heart. For me, the Opry is like the song “New York, New York” – if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. I am excited to be coming back home to celebrate fifty years of membership!”
Starting today, fans can buy tickets to the Opry events honoring Parton and her lauded career.
