Dollywood's Barbeque & Bluegrass festival 2013 kciks off featuring the legendary Ricky Skaggs

Dolly’s love for toe tappin’ bluegrass, savory southern barbeque and family togetherness made Dollywood’s Barbeque & Bluegrass a star-studded festival that is very close to Dolly’s heart. Growing up with bluegrass music instilled a love for the mountain music in Dolly which she has been able to share with everyone at Dollywood’s Barbeque & Bluegrass festival.

Dolly's said that everybody knows she loves bluegrass music.

“That’s why I’m so very proud to bring my Barbeque & Bluegrass Festival back this year. We’ve got fine pickers and mighty fine barbecue to spice things up, too! I realized Dollywood fans have a real hunger for bluegrass music and great tastin' barbeque. Since I aim to please, I'm proud to say Barbeque & Bluegrass is back and better than ever at Dollywood."

The festival returned to Dollywood Aug. 19 through Sept. 5 and featured big names like Ricky Skaggs & Kentucky Thunder, J.D. Crowe & The New South and Riders In The Sky.

When Dolly is involved, putting on a bluegrass concert series is more like a Bluegrass Blast. For three days, Dollywood visitors enjoyed music by award-winning artists across the theme park. Dolly said,

“I love listening to bluegrass music just about as much as I love singing it. That makes me especially proud to present bluegrass music’s finest at Dollywood during my Bluegrass Blast.”

Nine-time GRAMMY Award winner Ricky Skaggs, Ralph Stanley & the Clinch Mountain Boys and the Del McCoury Band headlined the event. All concerts were free with admission to Dollywood.
