4. Whenever he visits my gift shop, Garth Brooks tries to shoplift stuff under that big hat.
3. Smartass emcees who introduce you by saying: "And now here they are, Dolly Parton!"
2. Whenever the Super Bowl is over, winner never says, "I'm goin' to Dollywood!"

Dolly Parton is an American treasure. She has made it easy to not take her seriously with the wigs and the costumes and such, but that woman can write and perform a song.

Now? Hell, I think they had Dolly before they had rainbows. She's amazing. My family and I presented her with the key to our city when she was here because of her work with her Imagination Library, which has had a big presence here through one of the hospitals. She wanted to stay and chat, but she had a concert to perform. She's done so much for the area she grew up in as well. Dollywood is much more an employment opportunity for those in the area than anything else, I think.

My obligatory Dolly story.

When I was 16 (about 25 years ago) I was living in east Tennessee and dating a cousin of Dolly's. She was performing and being connected the gf and I were allowed backstage. Before Dolly went on stage several of us, including Dolly, were standing around chatting. About 5 minutes before showtime I looked around and noticed I'd somehow been left alone with her.

I look at Dolly snd she's staring right at with a smirk on her face. I was nervous as hell. She chuckled and said, "Don't worry, I won't bite...unless you want me to." Then she gave that Dolly laugh, winked at me, and went on stage.

She'll always be one of my favorites.

Not a fan of country music, but Dolly is awesome and a pure class act. Sure, her image gets most of the attention but she's a fantastic singer/songwriter and does a lot for her community.

/And even a country hater like me enjoys "Jolene."

I waited on her at restaurant once, she chatted to the entire staff, it was a slow day the other waiters and waitresses were glancing over not wanting to bother her and she just said loudly so everyone could hear, "I love meeting people come on over if y'all want." She then talked about food for about an hour with us all.  She is class.

/I love her "She got the goldmine, I got the shaft" duet with Jerry Reed.

My family was in the area on a vacation and got bored one day and decided "wtf, let's go to Dollywood - should be good for a laugh"

They loved it. They've gone back to the area since on vacation just to go back to Dollywood

Nashville has sucked since the 70s when the country music industry wanted everything to be saccharin sweet. Which is why Willie, Waylon, Johnny, and the rest of the outlaws left.  Nashville churns out stale pop music with steel guitars.

That's bullshiat. Cash never left, and spent most of the early 80's rerecording his earlier stuff. The early 80's were (in retrospect) a pretty golden era for Nashville.

Nashville treated Cash like trash in the 80s.  His career was in the dumps and aside from touring as part of the Highwaymen, he did little to nothing in that decade, aside from a parody song intended to make his label drop him.

He may not have left Nashville, but they sure as hell abandoned him.

Nah, Nashville churns out horrible music, no matter what year it is/was.  I don't even like C&W.

My only point was that Cash wasn't a part of Nashville in the 80s.  He may have resided there, but the 80s is considered a low point of his career due to being ignored by his label and the C&W community in general, aside from a few tours with fellow rejects.

Gaytip:  strong broads always get props.

Shows what I know. Thanks to both of you.

It's possible your perception of Nashville is colored by the tomfoolery of the last decade or decade and a half. It really wasn't always like that, or at least as not as bad as it got in the wake of 9-11.

Nashville has sucked since the 70s when the countryalways music industry wanted everything to be saccharin sweet. Which is why Willie, Waylon, Johnny, and the rest of the outlaws left.  Nashville churns out stale pop music with steel guitars.


The suits have always tried to put out a saccharine product.

I'm not defending the suits (far from it; they suck) but their job is to make $. You get more bees with honey (Nashville country/pop) than with vinegar (Hank III).

Some of you youngsters may not be aware that there was a fairly successful syndicated TV show back in the mid/late 70s callled 'Pop Goes The Country'. A harbinger, if you will.
