BREAKING: Heartland Furious As Dolly Parton Goes LIBERAL With Shocking Announcement
One of the few genuine country artists still performing for massive crowds, Dolly Parton has been a beacon of inspiration for conservatives in America.
But even Dolly is backing down amid the wrath of angry Democrats in her fan base.
The singer announced this week that she is changing the name of her road show to “Dolly Parton’s Stampede” instead of “Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede,” which she says is due to “changing attitudes” about the word “Dixie.”
Details on Dolly’s folly from Fox News:
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.
World Choice Investments LLC currently operates the Stampede dinner show for Parton in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., and Branson, Mo.
World Choice spokesman Pete Owens said Parton is referring to 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,” Owens 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.”
Country fans and conservatives are none-too-pleased:

Dolly Parton drops the name "Dixie" because it not PC. Very disappointed in her. I guess Dixie Cups isn't PC. Should people named "Dixie" be shunned until they change their name? #DollyParton I'm just saying. This may backfire #Dolly.

In other news, legendary country band Alabama is changing their name to “Philadelphia” out of respect for liberals who prefer the flag-protesting NFL to college football.
KIDDING! We hope.
