'Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede' dropping 'Dixie' from name

Dixie Stampede from the website

Parton announced the show is dropping the "Dixie" from its name and will now go by "Dolly Parton's Stampede".

The sign for Dolly Parton's Stampede dinner show is changed after the company announced they were taking the word "Dixie" out of the name.

"Our shows now are identified by where they are located", Parton said.

Searching for family fun and adventure during your vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains of Tennessee?

Parton said in a statement that the name change was spurred by changing attitudes and "will remove any confusion or concerns about our shows" as the company that operates the attraction expands into new markets.

Stampede also has locations in Branson, Missouri and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. "Instead, it romanticizes the old South, with generous portions of both corn on the cob and Southern belles festooned in Christmas lights".

"We try to create family entertainment that welcomes everyone, and when we create those shows we want to make sure that when your family comes to our show that you feel comfortable, " Owens said.

"It caused us some issues because it created a mis-characterization as to what our show is about", Owens said. "Accordingly, we will evaluate the information provided by Ms. Harris in her Slate.com article in regard to our Pigeon Forge and Branson operations".

The 2018 show season will feature changes in content and have new additions, according to Owens, though he didn't release specifics. The name is already changed on the attraction's social media accounts and website.

Although the name is changing, the theme will stay familiar.

"Well, like everybody else, I love Dolly, and I love all that she's done for our community, which is her community, and I'm disappointed that they're yielding to political correctness", Burchett said to knoxnews.com.
