PIGEON FORGE, Tenn.—Seven local performers from Dollywood theme park and Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede dinner attraction will perform as the opening act for Dolly Parton’s May 20 fundraising concert at 7:30 p.m. at Smokies Stadium.

"I’m really blessed that some of the most talented performers anywhere are working at Dollywood and Dixie Stampede," Parton said. "And I can’t wait to shine the spotlight on our local talent on May 20th. Their performances will just make this concert even more special to me." Dixie Stampede master of ceremonies Jay Teter serves in that same capacity during the opening act. Teter is currently performing in his 10th season at Dixie Stampede, which is celebrating its 20th year of operation in Pigeon Forge. An Edwardsburg, Mich., native, Teter will perform the concert’s opening song as well as introduce the six Dollywood vocalists who will entertain prior to Parton taking the stage.
