Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede dinner show is getting a new name for the new year.

In a press release issued Monday (Jan. 8), World Choice Investments, LLC and Parton revealed plans to change the name to simply Dolly Parton’s Stampede for the 2018 season.

“Our shows currently are identified by where they are located,” Dolly said in the release. “Some examples are Smoky Mountain Adventures or Dixie Stampede. We also recognize that attitudes change and feel that by streamlining the names of our shows, it will remove any confusion or concerns about our shows and will help our efforts to expand into new cities.”

World Choice Investments, LLC currently operates a number of dinner shows for the star, including locations in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, Branson, Missouri, and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The unique dinner events showcase a variety of live entertainment, from “heroic horsemanship to swashbuckling pirates.”

“There is interest in several parts of the United States and internationally to host one of our unique dinner attraction shows,” Jim Rule, World Choice Investments CEO, said. “We provide spectacular family entertainment at a great value. We continually listen to our guests and our desire to expand coupled with our desire to stay relevant in today’s changing world led us to simplify our shows’ names.”
