NASHVILLE, TN (August 3, 2015) – Dolly Parton wowed two sold out crowds during her recent Ryman weekend residency, which helped raise money for both the Dustin Wells Foundation/W.O. Smith School of Music and the Opry Trust Fund.

“I just love the Ryman, it’s such a sacred building. When I decided to do the benefit for Dr. Wells and the Dustin Wells Foundation, I was happy to learn it would be at the Ryman,” says Dolly Parton. “I was told the show sold out so quickly, that I decided to add a second concert so that I could help raise money for The Opry Trust Fund. The money from this weekend will help get instruments into the hands of children wanting to learn music and will also help all my friends at the Opry, in the event they need a little extra help.”
