You’ll have a chance to check out The Mountain Ruckus, the house band who performs country and bluegrass hits with authentic Smoky Mountain style. Past Mountain Ruckus members include Gary “Biscuit” Davis who was Dolly Parton’s band leader and produced her albums “The Grass Is Blue” and “Live and Well,” and currently includes YouTube phenomenon Kata Hay. Next you’ll enter the arena for the show and meal. The Dixie Stampede is an authentic Old West Review show featuring tricks, stunts, music and humor, all highlighted by some friendly competition between the North and South. Battles take the form of horseback riding competitions and you’ll see some tricks that will make your jaw drop! You’ll see barrel races, horses jump through flaming hoops and other amazing displays of pageantry and showmanship. Though Dolly Parton doesn’t appear in person, the show features some of her iconic music. You’ll hear her Native American-themed hit “Sha-Kon-O-Hey!” during the performance and the show will conclude with a pre-recorded performance of the special song “Color Me America.” The lights, sounds and actions of the show make it a mesmerizing experience.
