Quite a bit has been going on lately with the one and only, Dolly Parton. She was honored at the CMA’s, her TV Christmas special “Christmas of Many Colors” is debuting tonight on NBC, she performed last night on the Voice with Pentatonix and Miley Cyrus (posted above) . . . but it’s all overshadowed by the terrible wildfires near her Dollywood theme park.
The park had to close down for safety reasons . . . and it’ll reopen on Friday. In the meantime, employees have been pitching in on the cleanup and doing whatever they can to support the community.
Dolly issued a statement, saying, “I’ve been watching the terrible fires in the Great Smoky Mountains and I’m heartbroken. I’m praying for the families and the firefighters. It’s a blessing that my theme park, and so many businesses in Pigeon Forge have been spared.”
