Dolly Parton's popular dinner attraction Dixie Stampede dropped half of its name in a recent rebranding effort.

That's why our Facebook post about Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede dropping Dixie from its name brought out so many opinions.

World Choice Investments, LLC now operates several dinner show attractions in Pigeon Forge and Branson, Missouri.

"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", Parton said.

The name change has stirred emotions among fans of the show.

Stampede also has locations in Branson, Missouri and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Geological Survey, the nonprofit Planetary Science Institute, Georgia Tech, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Texas. In 2008, researchers even captured a full-scale avalanche on Mars as it plunged down a 2,300-foot slope into a valley.

They range from many saying they are going to boycott any and all Dolly Parton attractions.

The release said the "production team is hard at work updating the existing shows for 2018". "Instead, it romanticizes the old South, with generous portions of both corn on the cob and Southern belles festooned in Christmas lights".

"We certainly welcome all of our guest opinions and what their input is and we have for 30 years, and part of these changes that we are making are all because we listen to our guests", Owens said.

"We evaluate the show at the end of every season and update and make changes".

Cohen said the company likely put a lot of research into the name change.

The 2018 show season will feature changes in content and have new additions, according to Owens, though he didn't release specifics. Owens responded to Harris' piece in September and assured that an evaluation will be made regarding her observation. "This is not a cultural decision by them, this is not a decision about North versus South or the political correctness of the Civil War".
