Among some of the most famous people here in the Smokies is our own DOLLY PARTON

DOLLY PARTON

Of all famous people Dolly Parton is a Smoky Mountain favorite!

Most everyone loves Dolly!  Being originally from Sevierville, she comes around quite often!  She hosts a parade every year in the spring where she serves as grand marshal.  She has added a great deal to the community including Dollywood, Dollywood Splash Country, Dolly's Lumberjack Adventure, and Dolly’s Dixie Stampede.  Because she has given so much to those that live here, a statue has been erected on Sevierville’s courthouse lawn in her honor.  For Dolly, this statute is her greatest accomplishment.

BEN “CRAZY COOTER” JONES

Inside the world of famous people Ben Jones stands out as a true success story in the Smokies.

He’s best known for his role as Crazy Cooter on the Dukes of Hazzard TV show.   Now he owns “Cooter’s Place” in Gatlinburg.  This entertainment venue carries “all things Dukes!”   It’s a great family attraction that has go-cart racing (complete with General Lee go-carts, )  a mini golf course, a  museum, and a gift shop complete with Dukes memorabilia!   Cooter’s been known to invite some of his friends to Cooter’s Place.  Folks like Catherine  “Daisy”Bach, Ben “Cletus” Hurst, and Byron “couson Coy” Cherry have been here. Some of my favorite memories go back to the early days when you went to Cooter’s Place to fill up on Cooter’s Goobers! (Salted peanuts in the shell)
