Parton Promotes Tennessee in New Ads

Dolly Parton will promote Tennessee tourism in a new series of TV, radio and print ads carrying the slogan, “Tennessee, the stage is set for you!” At the foot of the Smoky Mountains in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., her Dollywood theme park is one of the state’s top tourist attractions. “Just remember Tennessee is great for more than music,” she says in one ad. “The stage is set for you, honey, come play on it.” Isaac Hayes also taped an ad at the Stax Museum of American Soul Music in his hometown of Memphis.
