Pure and Simple! Dolly Delights with Set List

(Dolly takes the stage at The Ryman Auditorium. Please excuse poor quality of photos. Camera phone shots)

Dolly Parton, looked and sounded amazing, raised thousands for charity and performed where she and so many others got their career start, The Ryman Auditorium. There's something about the Ryman that's majestic! 

Only complaints were the heat! It was very hot and at best warm. That many people jammed together on church pews/benches leaves a lot to be desired. The smell of alcohol, cigarettes and body odor could not detour the joy that Dolly brings to a show. A few times I wanted to smack people who disrespectfully talk during the ballads, gospel and sweeter songs. Younger people have a lack of respect.
