Discovering the Dolly Parton Statue

How to find this subtle tribute to a true icon

Did you know there’s a statue of Dolly Parton nestled in her hometown of Sevierville, TN?

Dedicated in 1987, it can be found on the Sevier County courthouse lawn.

“I cried my eyes out when I heard that,” Dolly said.
