The block is headlined by the premiere of the 2019 concert special Dolly Parton: 50 Years At The Opry at 8pE, a star-studded night packed with performances by Toby Keith, Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams Jr., and, of course, Dolly Parton herself, as they take the stage in Nashville to honor the Country bombshell’s 50TH Anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry.
