The Grand Ole Opry has been celebrating 50 years of Dolly Parton performances this fall.
Two dozen of her most famous costumes are on display from Sept. 3 to Oct. 31, according to its website.
"Every sequin tells a story and to celebrate Dolly Parton's 50th Opry Anniversary, we're sharing hers with a limited-time exhibit — 'Dolly: My Opry Memories', the Opry wrote on Facebook.
Parton was inducted into the Opry on Jan. 4, 1969.
Her outfits and accessories that were on the Opry stage can be seen in the exhibit in Studio A. You'll also be able to discover the world of Dolly, see exclusive interviews, performances, and her Opry moments.
