Dolly Parton will celebrate 50 years as a member of the Grand Ole Opry next year and there will be a week set aside to honor her massive achievement.

Dolly Week 2019 at the Grand Ole Opry will be held in October of next year with two performances scheduled on Oct. 12 by the legendary Opry member. Dolly was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on Jan. 4, 1969.

“It was always my dream to be on the Opry,” Dolly says in a statement. “I actually got to sing on the Grand Ole Opry when I was about 10 years old. I officially became a member back in 1969 and I cannot believe next year I will celebrate 50 proud years of being a member of the Grand Ole Opry!”

She continues, “They call it the ‘Mother Church’ because the old Ryman was a church, but it’s sacred to me, wherever it goes – the church of my heart. For me, the Opry is like the song ‘New York, New York’ – if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. I am excited to be coming back home to celebrate 50 years of membership!”

It was always my dream to be on the @Opry. I actually got to sing on the Grand Ole Opry when I was about 10 years old. I officially became a member back in 1969 and I cannot believe next year I will celebrate 50 proud years of being a member of the Grand Ole Opry! They call it the ‘Mother Church’ because the old @Ryman was a church, but it’s sacred to me, wherever it goes – the church of my heart. For me, the Opry is like the song ‘New York, New York’ – if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. I am excited to be coming back home for two shows at the end of Opry's Dolly Week, on October 12, 2019, to celebrate 50 years of membership! Tickets on sale at 11 am CT tomorrow at opry.com! 💕
