Show Information for Dolly Parton's Stampede Pigeon Forge, TN

Dixie Stampede is changing it name to “Dolly Parton's Stampede” Dixie Stampede changes name

In Branson and elsewhere, Dolly Parton's dinner show attractions are dropping the "Dixie" from their brand name.

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede will have a new name when it opens for the 2018 season.

Owens said they take feedback from guests at every show very seriously, and they make changes to the show every year based on the feedback. Some samples of Parton's Stampede dinner shows are Smoky Mountain Adventures or Dixie Stampede. Parton says the change streamlines the name, and removes any concern or confusion visitors may have.

"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".

Although the name is changing, the theme will stay familiar. Branson's "Stampede" reopens February 23rd. She said the show never once mentioned slavery.

The U.N. and USA have described the military operation as "ethnic cleansing" of the Muslim minority, but have not released specific death tolls.

According to the press release, the production team is hard at work updating the existing shows for 2018. Instead, it romanticizes the South. Harris compared it to Springtime for Hitler, the musical featured in The Producers.

"Our shows now are identified by where they are located", Parton said, referring to Smoky Mountain Adventures or Dixie Stampede. The event now just goes by Dolly Parton's Stampede, a sign of shifting cultural norms. In September, Dollywood's Director of Media and Public Relations Pete Owen sent a response to Slate after her review ran and said the company would carefully consider her points.

"Well, like everybody else, I love Dolly, and I love all that she's done for our community, which is her community, and I'm disappointed that they're yielding to political correctness", Burchett said to knoxnews.com.

The show is scheduled to reopen on January 19.
