Dixie Stampede is changing it name to “Dolly Parton's Stampede”

Strong reactions met the news of Dolly Parton's Stampede dinner show dropping "Dixie" from its name.

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett said he was disappointed that the show changed its name.

Dolly Parton's famous horseback dinner show will now be known only as Dolly Parton's stampede dinner attraction with no mention of the word "Dixie".

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett tells KnoxNews.com that he's disappointed in the name change from Dixie Stampede.

In a statement, Parton said the name change will remove any confusion or concerns as the show expands across the world.

The shows now operate in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and Branson, Missouri.




Dolly's ditching the Dixie in her popular dinner show.

"Our shows now are identified by where they are located", the release explains. It offers a trick-riding show, comedy, music and a comfort-food dinner in the context of a "competition, pitting North against South in a friendly and fun rivalry", the show states on its website.

Aisha Harris, a Slate.com journalist and self-described Dolly Parton fan, wrote an opinion essay titled "Springtime for the Confederacy". "Instead, it romanticizes the old South, with generous portions of both corn on the cob and Southern belles festooned in Christmas lights". "What's next? Are we going to change the name of Dixie cups and the Dixie sugar company?"

The release said the "production team is hard at work updating the existing shows for 2018".

World Choice Investments CEO Jim Rule says the rebranding is part of an effort to "stay relevant in today's changing world". Through that process, we survey our guests at every show. The shows will resume late in January through early spring, depending on the location.

"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.
