Dolly Parton will celebrate 50 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry with a performance on Saturday, October 12, 2019. The performance will cap a week-long celebration of Dolly’s impact on music and the Opry, dubbed "Dolly Week 2019."

Dolly said, “It was always my dream to be on the Opry. I actually got to sing on the Grand Ole Opry when I was about 10 years old. I officially became a member back in 1969 and I cannot believe next year I will celebrate 50 proud years of being a member of the Grand Ole Opry! They call it the ‘Mother Church’ because the old Ryman was a church, but it’s sacred to me, wherever it goes – the church of my heart. For me, the Opry is like the song ‘New York, New York’ – if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. I am excited to be coming back home to celebrate 50 years of membership!”
