Dolly Parton removes 'Dixie' from show

Dolly Parton removes 'Dixie' from show

The sign for Dolly Parton's Stampede dinner show is changed after the company announced they were taking the word "Dixie" out of the name.

The show's official website has already been changed to reflect the new name, Dolly Parton's Stampede. Parton says the change streamlines the name, and removes any concern or confusion visitors may have.

Dolly Parton's Stampede has dinner theaters in Pigeon Forge, TN; Branson, MO: and Myrtle Beach, SC.

"We continually listen to our guests and our desire to expand coupled with our desire to stay relevant in today's changing world led us to simplify our shows' names".

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett said he was disappointed that the show changed its name.

"Dolly Parton is an American icon", Cohen said. Lee, this time, was a piglet-part of Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, a Medieval Times-style dine-in attraction where seven nights a week and at occasional weekend matinees, the South rises again.

According to the leaks, the primary lens will have an f/1.5 aperture while the secondary camera will come with an f/2.4 aperture. Furthermore, the retail box also mentions AKG-tuned stereo speakers which means sound output will be much more better on the S9.

A quote attributed to Dolly Parton in a press release from World Choice Investments said "Some examples are Smoky Mountain Adventures or Dixie Stampede". Instead, it romanticizes the South. Harris compared it to Springtime for Hitler, the musical featured in The Producers. "This is not a cultural decision by them, this is not a decision about North versus South or the political correctness of the Civil War".

"Our shows now are identified by where they are located", the release explains.

"It caused us some issues because it created a mis-characterization as to what our show is about", Owens said.

Two weeks later, Harris published a response from the company, which noted "we strive to constantly improve the guest experience at our shows" by surveying customers and that "accordingly, we will evaluate the information provided by Ms. Harris in her Slate.com article in regard to our Pigeon Forge and Branson operations".

The existing locations re-open for the 2018 season from late January through early spring depending on location.
