I am excited to tell you that after a spectacular debut earlier this year, Dollywood's DreamMore Resort and Spa's Winter Music Series will be back in January. The Winter Music Series offers guests the opportunity to enjoy musical performances in an intimate setting. The ticketed event is open to both resort guests and non-resort guests and provides an unparalleled experience with performances every Friday and Saturday* at 7 p.m. under the climate-controlled tent on the resort's event lawn Jan. 13 through March 4, 2023. *The Young Fables are playing three nights: Friday, Jan. 13-Sunday, Jan. 15.
The Young Fables create music with classic storytelling weaved into traditional country roots music with pop sensibilities. East Tennessee natives Wes Lunsford and Laurel Wright's unique sound has resonated with audiences around the globe, as The Young Fables sing about themes and topics they say are typically saved for the therapy couch.
Celebrating his 50th year in show business, T. Graham Brown continues to bring his soulful brand of country music to audiences everywhere. Multiple top ten hits, three number ones and a career that has included music, film, stage and television provides Brown with a unique perspective on storytelling and songwriting. While most of his hit records were in the 80s and 90s, Brown says "I'm having more fun now than I ever have. I'm not out there chasing the hits, I'm just trying to stay out there. I'll keep taking the music to the people as long as God lets me. It's what I love to do!"
ACM Female Vocalist of the Year winner, Sylvia, is known for her hits, including the chart-topping, two-million selling crossover record, "Nobody," BMI's Country Song of the Year in 1982 for most radio airplay. Sylvia has continued to entertain countless fans across the country and continues to make new music, like her newest release, "Nature Child." According to Sylvia, "Music can inspire you to dream and go for it. It can be a soundtrack for your own dreamer's journey."
Grammy award-winner and Grand Ole Opry member Jeannie Seely brings her individualism, infectious sense of humor and top-notch songwriting to her performances. In addition to her countless chart-topping hits, Seely also is a writer, storyteller and stage actor. In his book "Finding Her Voice: Women in Country Music," music critic Robert K. Oermann writes, "With her chin-out, tough/tender, heart-of-gold manner, Jeannie Seely remains one of country's most completely modern female personalities."
Initially a songwriter for Acuff-Rose Music, Aaron Tippin gained a recording contract with RCA Nashville in 1990. His debut single, "You've Got to Stand for Something" became a popular anthem for American soldiers fighting in the Gulf War and helped to establish him as a neo-traditionalist country act with songs that catered primarily to the American working class. One platinum album, six gold albums and 30 years later, Aaron Tippin still delights in performing and in those who come out to see him. But, don't call them "fans"‚Äìhe thinks of his audiences as family. "They have been so great to me over the years, and they're still coming out to the shows," said Tippin. "That's why I still sign autographs every night. I just want to get out there, shake their hand and give them a big hug‚Äìjust to say thank you."
Marty Haggard was born and raised in Bakersfield, CA, and everyone knows his Dad, Merle Haggard. Haggard considers his dad the greatest singer/songwriter ever, and a lot of people agree with that. Growing up, Haggard was able to travel with his dad and witness the writing and recording of all his great songs. He also had the opportunity to know many of the country greats, including Bob Wills, Lefty Frizzell, and Johnny Cash, just to name a few. Haggard's love for his dad and his music eventually inspired him to record a tribute to Merle Haggard "My Dad." In 2010, he recorded the first album of this project with a 15-song CD of Hag classics. This led to a tribute show in Branson, MO, where he performed for two years. In 2011, Marty released a tribute to Merle Haggard "My Dad, Volume Two." He then took the show on the road throughout the country, as well as to Canada, Ireland, Scotland and England. As Haggard's song, "Apple," proclaims, "the apple never falls too far from its tree."
