In response to the demand for tickets to the Pure And Simple benefit scheduled for July 31 at the Ryman Auditorium, Dolly has added a second show on Aug. 1 that will benefit the Opry Trust Fund.

“I love being a member of the Grand Ole Opry…have been since 1969,” said Parton.”It’s important to me to be able to do a concert for the Opry Trust Fund as so many of my old Opry friends have benefited from it through the years. The money raised will go to help fund the medical needs and hospitalization for those who are not able to afford it and need the help. I am proud to be of help in any way.”

Tickets for the added date are $55 and $100 and will go on sale July 2 at 10 a.m. online only at

The two dates will mark the first time Dolly has performed full concerts in Music City in 12 years.
