Dolly Parton doesn’t really do ANYTHING without doing it BIG!!!
The country music songstress and pop culture icon is embarking on a $300 million project. That’s how much she’s spending to expand “Dollywood” in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.“It’s gonna be a big deal,” Parton. says “I’m so excited … this has been a dream from the very beginning,” Parton shares. “It’s got a Southern flair, but it’s done very classy.”The expansion is going to include a “family” roller coaster, a resort hotel, front-porch style spaces, a fishing pond, grills for cooking and a lemonade in the lobby! Despite advisors telling her not to open up the park back in 1986, she went on with plans. “I’m gonna do it anyway, because I know that it’s the right thing to do in my gut,” is what she told herself she said.
“Dollywood” had its most successful year in 2012.
