‘Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene. I'm begging of you please don't take my man.’ This song sung by country music queen Dolly Parton was a worldwide sensation in 1973. Born on January 19, 1946 in Tennessee, Dolly Parton was dedicated to establish her career which would lead into stardom. By 1999 she was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. She became a cultural icon whose attractive figure and powerful voice made her both popular on screen and stage. She opened her own theme park called Dollywood in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, in 1986. The amusement park remains a popular travel destination to this day.
Welcome to Dollywood and join a party that starts in the morning and ends only when you call it a night. Dance and sing to the beat of country and bluegrass. Bluegrass was inspired by the music of Appalachia having mixed roots in Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and English traditional music, and also later influenced by the music of African-Americans. Classic rock 'n' roll and Southern gospel music will be an inspiration after a hot day.
Let lose in the bone-rattling roller coasters, such as the Wild Eagle, Barnstormer, Thunderhead and Mystery Mine. You can spend the whole day there and not worry about packing a lunch. Linger at the restaurants that serve a range of delicious Southern cuisine you're sure to be well fed. Choices include everything from full-service dining to a wide variety of concession.
Dollywood is organized into ten themed areas. The Show street, River town Junction, Craftsmen's Valley, Village, Country Fair, Timber Canyon, and Jukebox Junction areas reflect the historical eras and culture of east Tennessee, while the Owens Farm and Adventures in Imagination areas explore Dolly Parton's life and imagination. Many attractions focus on the history and culture of the Southern Appalachian region.
Enjoy the open air ambiance at these many attractions. The several cultural festivals held at Dollywood, bring food, entertainment and music from all over the world. Sip cappuccino at an open-air café and bite into a cinnamon bun minutes after it emerges from the oven. Hum, greet and cheer with your new friends at the concerts and reconnect with each other and your newly found friends, while nestled in the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains.
