Stay gold, Dolly Parton.
Today (Jan. 4), the Queen of Country is celebrating her golden anniversary—that’s 50 years—as a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
“It was always my dream to be on the Opry,” says Dolly. “I actually got to sing on the Grand Ole Opry when I was about 10 years old. I officially became a member back in 1969 and I cannot believe [I’m celebrating] 50 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 50 years of membership.”
To commemorate the milestone accomplishment, the Opry will celebrate Dolly Week in October with a number of performances on Oct. 10, 11 and 12.
Oct. 10 | Opry Country Classics featuring performances of Dolly’s No. 1 hits
Oct. 11 | Dolly’s Mountain Soul: Bluegrass, Americana & Roots Music honors Dolly
Oct. 12 | Dolly Parton’s 50th Grand Ole Opry Anniversary Celebration featuring Dolly Parton and many more (two shows)
