Dolly inducted into East Tennessee Hall of Fame in 1988

Dolly was inducted into the East Tennessee Hall of Fame for the Performing Arts in October 1988.  At the award ceremony, Dolly got laughs – when the projection of a tribute to her did not work. Dolly quickly responded with her famously quick-wit,

The East Tennessee Hall of Fame is housed in the Bijou Theatre in Knoxville, TN.
