Dolly Parton Ditches Waterpark

Dolly Parton Pulls Out of Plans for Nashville Waterpark!

Earlier this year, it was announced that country music powerhouse, Dolly Parton, was in the thick of plans to create a waterpark in Nashville, TN. It looks like this is one project Parton won’t be seeing to completion though. Dolly’s team has released an official statement indicating that she will no longer be involved in the plans. While her words are tactful and diplomatic, if we read between the lines, it looks like someone was trying to push this woman around a little bit, and those of us that love Dolly, know that was a mistake!

“Gaylord makes decisions that they feel are good for their company and their stockholders and I have to make decisions based on what is best for me and the Dollywood Company. Governor Haslam, Mayor Dean, and all the folks in government have been great to work with. I really appreciate their support through this process. I think everyone knows I love Nashville and I hope the work we’ve already done will spark more family entertainment in Nashville.” -Dolly Parton

This news is a bit of a bummer, but luckily we still have plenty of Dolly-themed fun to experience already!
