by

That’s right, folks. Dolly Parton has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for 50 years. Since becoming a member on the 4th of January, 1969, she’ll be celebrating her golden anniversary starting on the 12th of October with an all-star concert on the Opry stage in Nashville.

Although the show has long been sold out, fans of the bedazzled Queen of Country can now catch the concert when it airs on NBC during Thanksgiving week.

Dolly Parton: 50 Years at the Grand Ole Opry

The television special will premier on Tuesday, the 26th of November, and it features highlights from the Opry tribute. Emmylou Harris, Toby Keith, and Hank Williams Jr. are among the veteran artists paying tribute to Parton, along with contemporary stars like Dierks Bentley, Margo Price, Lady Antebellum, and Chris Janson.

In a statement, Parton expressed her happiness and excitement about the celebration.

“I’m so thrilled to be celebrating my 50-year anniversary with the Grand Ole Opry. I’m also excited that NBC wanted to share in this milestone with me. Together we hope to entertain a broader audience on what the Grand Ole Opry is and what it means to me.”

The resident Queen of Country shows no sign of stopping as of yet. Recently, she has been the focus of a number of projects, from the Opry recognition to becoming the subject of a new podcast entitled “Dolly Parton’s America,” which will debut this fall. She will also take part in the holiday film “Christmas at Dollywood” for the Hallmark Channel.
