Statement from Dolly Parton Regarding The Dollywood Company Development in Nashville PIGEON FORGE, Tenn., September 28, 2012—Dolly Parton announced today that due to the decision by Gaylord stockholders on September 25 to sell the daily operation of its Opryland Resort and Convention Center to a third party, the Dollywood Company has ended its participation in the previously announced Nashville water park. “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,” said Parton. “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,” Parton added.
