To celebrate Dolly Parton’s 50th anniversary as a Grand Ole Opry member, the Opry House will host “Dolly: My Opry Memories,” an exclusive exhibit featuring 24 wardrobe pieces the country music icon has worn on the Opry stage and at events held at the Ryman Auditorium over the last 50 years.
Among Parton’s fashions to be featured:
- Dress worn on the evening of her Opry induction (1969)
- Gown worn for a duet with fellow Opry member Vince Gill on her monster smash, “I Will Always Love You” (1995)
- Ensemble worn during a surprise Opry appearance to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Reba McEntire’s Opry debut (2017)
The superstar will perform on two sold-out shows on Saturday, October 12, 2019, capping a week-long celebration of Parton’s impact on music and the Opry, dubbed Dolly Week 2019.
