The show pays tribute to three legendary female country singers — Dolly Parton, Shania Twain and Patsy Cline.

Wynonah Dove, who performs as Dolly Parton in the show, said audiences could expect a bigger and better performance.

“We have quite a bit of audience interaction,” Dove said.

“We have added in new songs and added songs that us girls have done together.

“We have a great finale and we are doing a tribute to Kasey Chambers and Catherine Britt.”

Dove began impersonating Parton in 2003 after being told she sounded like the legendary singer.

“I was a singer-songwriter in Nashville, Tennessee, and I kept getting from folks that I sounded like Dolly Parton,” Dove said.

“I thought ‘well it might not work in commercial country if I sound like her so I might as well pay tribute to her’.

“It just kind of snowballed from there and it just built.”

Dove is an actress, Appalachian vocalist, songwriter and musician.

Career highlights include a starring role in a production by The Trail of the Lonesome Pine State Outdoor Drama in Virginia in the US.

She has toured with an Appalachian theatre ensemble, starred in a film, Class Action, and performed around the world.

Dove’s career took inspiration from Parton’s success in the entertainment industry.

“Dolly for me is a really personal thing because I love her so much,” Dove said.

“She is an icon, a mentor and she really has been a role model for me.

“She really knows her music, especially [folk] and that really holds true for me.”
