‘Dolly!’ a syndicated variety show on ABC

In the mid-1970s, president of Show Biz, Bill Graham approached Dolly to host a syndicated variety show of her own after she ended a seven-year run on “The Porter Wagoner Show.”

With a nearly six-figure budget per episode, the show had the highest production costs of any show produced outside of Nashville at the time. Guest stars included a variety of stars from Nashville and Hollywood, including Captain Kangaroo, Ronnie Milsap, Kenny Rogers, Anne Murray, The Fifth Dimension, and KC & The Sunshine Band. The show marked the first time Dolly and Kenny ever worked together.
