Our good friends Jack and Sheri Herschend are the chief designers and idea people behind Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. They took that idea and planted it in the Smokey Mountains many years ago. Karen and I first took Julie and Tim down to visit Silver Dollar City about 30 years ago and we had a ball.
Now it is Dollywood in her home town of Pigeon Forge and she has made herself proud. Dollywood has expanded greatly.
We had a great time and I am highlighting two shows that were outstanding in entertainment and inspiration. The First group I saw (Right photo above) consisted of six male singers from Zambia. Their vocalizing was wonderful and their repertoire varied from Country and Western to Gospel to Zambian.+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
The second was a terrific group from Ireland that sang, played traditional instruments and danced. It was thoroughly entertaining.
