Just two months after announcing a new water and snow park would not be opening in Nashville, Dolly Parton says she still has plans for Music City in the future.
Plans for the park were initially unveiled in January, but were called off after Opryland Resort and Convention Center sold their day-to-day operations to Marriott in late September.
“The deal that we had going just didn't work out from other business deals that other people were working on but some day we will have something great there so that's still on the table,” Parton told Nashville's News 2.
She continued, “I still do have plans to do something great and special in Nashville, in the Nashville area because that's where I have lived for almost the last 50 years. My husband is from that area, Born and raised in that area, so it's very important to me. ”
Parton declined to comment any further regarding any future plans.
Nashville's News 2 contacted the mayor's office, where a spokesperson said they are not aware of any active business dealings involving Parton.
Parton is currently promoting her new book “Dream More: Celebrate the Dream in You.”
