She stated that Parton was undoubtedly one of America's greatest entertainers. The singer also got her rise to fame through the country star. When Pearce was a teenager, she performed at the famous Dollywood amusement park in Tennessee.

At 75 years old, the country music queen didn't look a day over 50. The "9 To 5" artist once jokingly gave credit to cosmetic surgery for keeping her happy. She also stated that she would never be old.

According to Parton, she didn't have time to grow old. The "Joyful Noise" actress confessed that she planned to maintain her youthfulness with cosmetic surgery. However, she also believed it was more important to feel young on the inside.

Just like the singer, the performances at the Grand Ole Opry never grow old. According to sources, for 95 years, the institution has served audiences with live performances from A-list artists, bands, comedians, and more.

This year, the Opry invited beloved musicians such as Lorrie Morgan and Charles Esten to perform for their audience. Bands like The Oak Ridge Boys, Riders in the Sky, and more were included in the star-studded lineup.
