This tribute to the most honored female country performer of all time by her hometown community is the only place on earth you’re guaranteed to get close to the living legend. The six-and-a-half-foot tall bronze sculpture was crafted by nationally-known local artist Jim Gray and unveiled more than 30 years ago.
A stop will also be made at The Pines Mural located in historic downtown Sevierville on the Pines Building. The artwork honors its building’s history as a theater by featuring five of the most famous talents who performed on its stage: singer Roy Acuff, comedian Archie Campbell, superstar Dolly Parton, singer-songwriter June Carter Cash, and musician Chet Atkins.
Next, visit SkyLand Ranch when your journey to the top of SkyLand Ranch begins on the Horizon Skyride! Hop in the chairlift and enjoy a scenic ride to the top where you enjoy a BBQ Lunch and Special Private Concert and Q&A with 5-time National Champion Banjo Player Gary “Biscuit” Davis.
In addition to being the only 5-time National Banjo Champion, Biscuit has traveled the world performing with incredible artists, including one of the biggest names ever in music, Dolly Parton. Not only did Biscuit perform with Dolly, but he was also her band leader for many years and produced tracks for her on multiple albums. Biscuit is one of the most talented and entertaining individuals you will ever meet, as well as being an incredible storyteller. You will enjoy every second spent with Biscuit.
The remainder of the day will be spent at Dollywood Theme Park, known for its world-class entertainment, amazing thrill rides, and family friendly adventure. At Dollywood you’ll enjoy live stage shows, the Dolly museum, real train rides, the American Eagle habitat. You’ll also enjoy watching Dollywood’s master craftsmen and artisans at work proudly continuing the centuries-old traditions of hand-making their arts & crafts with daily demonstrations.

New at Dollywood in 2024 is The Dolly Parton Experience which is slated to open this spring with a number of interactive elements to make you feel as if you were alongside Dolly as she journeyed from Locust Ridge to stages around the world.
Housed in multiple buildings, the multi-faceted Dolly Parton Experience includes exhibits which span her iconic career, the inspiration and results of her biggest dreams, the importance of her family, and even a curated exhibit that highlights Dolly’s signature style through the years.
