Dolly Parton announced today that she will no longer be associated with the previously planned water park in Nashville.
In a statement, Dolly Parton explained: "Gaylord makes decisions that they feel are good for their company and their stockholders, and I have to make decisions based on what is best for me and the Dollywood Company... Governor Haslam, Mayor Dean, and all the folks in government have been great to work with. I really appreciate their support through this process. I think everyone knows I love Nashville, and I hope the work we've already done will spark more family entertainment in Nashville."
