The devastating wildfires taking place over Tennessee have put Dolly Parton’s theme park, Dollywood at serious risk.
Dolly is filming a TV show in Los Angeles at the moment, but has made a statement regarding the tragedy that ensues and how her real heartfelt home is truly in Tennessee.
Here’s what Dolly had to say:
“I have been watching the terrible fires in the Great Smoky Mountains and I am heartbroken. I am praying for all the families affected by the fire and the firefighters who are working so hard to keep everyone safe. It is a blessing that my Dollywood theme park, the DreamMore Resort and so many businesses in Pigeon Forge have been spared.”
The fires are indeed incredibly close to Dollywood. The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency is stating how the fires are essentially “right on the doorstep” of Dollywood. Indeed a tragedy for all the families in the area that weren’t so lucky and are losing their homes to the fires.
