Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede will have a new name when it opens for the 2018 season.
According to a press release, the word Dixie will be dropped. The show's official website has already been changed to reflect the new name, Dolly Parton's Stampede.
“Our shows currently are identified by where they are located,” Dolly said. “Some examples are Smoky Mountain Adventures or Dixie Stampede. We also recognize that attitudes change and feel that by streamlining the names of our shows, it will remove any confusion or concerns about our shows and will help our efforts to expand into new cities.”
The release says the "production team is hard at work updating the existing shows for 2018,"
