Dolly Parton Caves To Pressure And Drops “Dixie” From The Title Of Her Dinner Theaters

While she has, in the past, successfully stayed out of the political fray, Dolly Parton is now making headlines as she caves to political correctness and changes the name of her dinner theaters which were formerly titled: Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede.

Apparently, “Dixie” is just too inflammatory to vacationers who might attend her venues.

FOX News reports:

Country singer Dolly Parton has discarded “Dixie” from the name of a popular dinner show, “Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede,” due to cultural concerns.

From now on, the attraction will simply be known as Dolly Parton’s Stampede.

Parton said in a statement that the name change was spurred by changing attitudes and “will remove any confusion or concerns about our shows” as the company that operates the attraction expands into new markets.

… “It has added to confusion in discussions about the expansion of our dinner theaters to new locations across the country and around the world,” Owens said in a statement.

“Some of our guest comments and comments of developers, in markets around the country with whom we spoke, show a misconception of what our show is. They do not realize the Stampede is a very patriotic, spectacular, horse show with 32 beautiful horses as the stars.”

However there are some fans that don’t agree with the change:

Dolly, we know you don’t like to get involved in politics. But you just did by caving to the PC elites. Very disappointing.
