Tragic Details About Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton is a country music legend and an American institution. She's also a quadruple threat. She sings, writes, acts, and directs, and she's that rare celebrity who is simply impossible not to love. She's Betty White in rhinestones, Bob Hope in a 40DD bra. (Incidentally, according to E! Online, Parton's most famous assets are insured for $600,000. Not quite J. Lo. booty numbers, but still.)

    The Truth Behind Dollywood

    The Truth Behind Dollywood

    While Disneyland is officially "the Happiest Place on Earth," the actual happiest place on Earth — or at least in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee — has to be Dollywood. The sprawling entertainment complex bears the name of its owner and spokesperson, Dolly Parton — the glamorous, witty, and approachable actress/singer-songwriter beloved by virtually all of America since she first became famous in the early 1970s. Only a handful of humans ever become wealthy, prominent, or interesting enough to get their own theme park, and Parton is one of them. Since 1986, Dollywood has delighted millions of tourists with its thrill rides, attractions, and folksy appeal that could only come from the congenial Parton. It's also one of the most overlooked amusement parks, as places like Disneyland, Disney World, and Six Flags seem to hog all the attention. Dollywood is a unique place with a wild story, so here's a lot of stuff you didn't know about America's most down-home entertainment destination.
