One of the auction’s featured items is Dolly Parton’s Swarovski-crystal-studded dulcimer, which is estimated at $50,000 to $100,000. Dolly recently performed with the dulcimer during her 50th Anniversary Opry celebration in October 2019.

“Seeing my country music community suffer due to the pandemic has broken my heart,” says Dolly. “It was important to donate the dulcimer that was designed for my 50th Opry Anniversary so we can raise awareness and much needed funds to keep these folks on their feet before we can open the doors to our stages once again.”

Thomas Rhett Will Never Take Touring for Granted

Thomas Rhett is ready to hit the road and Bring The Bar To You in 2022!

Starting in June, Thomas will kick-off his Bring The Bar To You tour with back to back shows in Gilford, New Hampshire with openers Parker McCollum and Conner Smith.

After going through the last two years, Thomas says, “I’ll never take for granted being able to come see y’all and I’m so fired up to play some of these new ones that were made with these nights in mind. I have a feeling things are going to get loud – I’m counting down the days already!”
