Dolly Parton IS the cool aunt of country music. (By far is going to be the most interesting guest at any dinner table)
But not only has she been rockin’ the rhinestones for decades, she’s also been a member of the Grand Ole Opry for 50 years!
January 4th, 2019 is the official half-century mark, for Dolly. She was first inducted in 1969. [CAN YOU BELIEVE?!]

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 for two shows at the end of Opry’s Dolly Week, on October 12, 2019, to celebrate 50 years of membership! Tickets on sale at 11 am CT tomorrow at opry.com!
Miss Dolly Parton will have her celebratory Grand Opry Performance next year, on October 12th.
