Dollywood hosts The Band Perry in concert as part of the Showcase of Stars on Saturday, Sept. 19th and the show will benefit Imagination Library.
One of the most dynamic acts in music today, the sibling trio proved to be a powerful new force when they delivered their platinum self-titled debut, “The Band Perry,” which offered five hit singles, including the quintuple-platinum chart-topper “If I Die Young.” In recent years, the band has earned multiple awards from the Academy of Country Music, the Country Music Association, the CMT Music Awards and the American Country Awards. This is the first time the group from nearby Greeneville, Tenn. has performed at Dollywood.
Dolly Parton announced the return of Dollywood’s popular Showcase of Stars concert series in March as part of the award-winning park’s 30th anniversary season. Parton, whose last benefit concert at Dollywood was in 2005, kicked off the series with four sold-out concerts Aug. 8-9 at Dolly Parton’s Celebrity Theater and raised $500,000 in the process.
Showcase of Stars offers guests the experience of great performances in an intimate setting while allowing them to simultaneously support a worthy cause. Dollywood season pass holders have the first opportunity to purchase tickets to the show. Pass holders will receive an email with an exclusive link to purchase. Any remaining tickets will be made available to the general public at a later date.
