Dolly Chats Up Dollywood & “9 To 5” Musical

Dolly appeared live via satellite from Dollywood today to chat with Fox News about the park’s 23rd season, the new River Battle ride, her recent American Idol appearance, and 9 To 5: The Musical. During the second segment of the interview, Dolly got a surprise from the host when he revealed that Dolly’s 9 To 5 costar Lily Tomlin was on the phone listening in. The two chatted briefly about the upcoming musical before the host revealed another surprise to Dolly as he introduced Michael Johns, one of the final nine American Idol contestants that Dolly mentored last week who was just voted off on last night’s show. Check out both segments from Fox News:

Dolly made other appearances throughout Dollywood today to celebrate the park’s 2008 season. She first appeared at the park’s new River Battle water ride wearing a red leather raincoat saying, “I’ve threatened them about the water. Even though I’ve got my raincoat on, I’d just as soon not get wet cause I might fall apart!” Video from that event is available from the Knoxville News-Sentinel. Dolly then appeared at a new Mexican dance show in Dollywood before doing a brief parade through the park. Later that evening, Dolly appeared on top of a grass-covered float in her annual Dolly Parade down the Parkway in Pigeon Forge. Check out more coverage and a few photos from Dollymania. Fans who attended any of the events today are encouraged to write and send us photos!
