Dolly Parton's dinner attraction drops "Dixie" from name

Dolly Parton's dinner attraction drops

Much like many parts of history, Dixie has a murky past.

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede has undergone a name change.

"Our shows now are identified by where they are located", Parton said.

Parton explained the release that although her attractions like Dixie Stampede and Smoky Mountain Adventures are identified by its location, the company also recognizes attitudes change over time. Parton says the change streamlines the name, and removes any concern or confusion visitors may have.

"Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede" will now be known as "Dolly Parton's Stampede".

Local Zachary Dunn told Local 8 News if they are willing to drop the name dixie, there's probably a good reason.

"We continually listen to our guests and our desire to expand coupled with our desire to stay relevant in today's changing world led us to simplify our shows' names", Rule said in the statement.

It says the dinner show features, "A friendly competition between North and South".

Plans were also announced to expand into new places around the world this year. "Instead, it romanticizes the old South, with generous portions of both corn on the cob and Southern belles festooned in Christmas lights".

The release said the "production team is hard at work updating the existing shows for 2018". "We provide spectacular family entertainment at a great value".

The name change has stirred emotions among fans of the show. "She's the brand. I think if you have Dolly's name in front of anything it totally eclipses what comes after Dolly Parton".

The Pigeon Forge, Tennessee attraction will start its 2018 season later in January with shows on Jan. 19, 20, 26 and 27, according to its website.

"We evaluate the show at the end of every season and update and make changes".
