Dolly Parton removes ‘Dixie’ from Stampede dinner show
World Choice spokesman Pete Owens said Parton is referring shifting attitudes about the word “Dixie” and its connotations.
“It has added to confusion in discussions about the expansion of our dinner theaters to new locations across the country and around the world,” he said in a statement. “Some of our guest comments and comments of developers, in markets around the country with whom we spoke, show a misconception of what our show is. They do not realize The Stampede is a very patriotic, spectacular, horse show with 32 beautiful horses as the stars.”
