DOLLYWOOD'S 1993 CONCERT LINEUP FEATURES 158 PERFORMANCES BY TOP COUNTRY STARS

 PIGEON FORGE, Tenn., Jan. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- The sounds of the best and brightest in country music will once again fill Dollywood's Celebrity Theatre throughout the 1993 season as the entertainment park announces the lineup for its 6th annual "Showcase of Stars" concert series.
 This year's "Showcase of Stars," presented by Coca-Cola Classic, debuts May 1-2 and continues every weekend throughout the park's regular operating season. In addition to weekend concerts, the "Showcase of Stars" will be presented daily from June 26 through August 1.
 For the second year, the concert schedule features a blend of contemporary country favorites with many of country music's hottest new artists. "In 1992, we responded to our visitors' requests to feature a wider variety of popular country artists -- from long-time favorites in the industry like the Statler Brothers and Conway Twitty to hot new acts like Billy Dean and Diamond Rio," said Mike Hutcherson, Dollywood General Manager. "Last year's Showcase of Stars' proved to be our most successful and dynamic line-up in the five-year history of the series, and this year we will again feature the best and brightest artists from both contemporary and classic country music."
 Ten artists are appearing for the first time in Dollywood's 1993 "Showcase of Stars." Chart-topper Doug Stone kicks off the concert series May 1-2, and popular recording artists Sammy Kershaw, Little Texas, Aaron Tippin, Hal Ketchum, Marty Stuart, Joe Diffie, Collin Raye, and Lorrie Morgan will also make their Dollywood debuts. Country comic Jerry Clower also takes the stage at Dollywood for the first time, joining country legend Tammy Wynette at the Celebrity Theatre in late October. On the occasion of their first appearance at Dollywood, each of these country stars will be honored during the first day of their visit with induction into the entertainment park's special "Starwalk" attraction.
 Dollywood will implement a new value pricing structure for the "Showcase of Stars" concert tickets in 1993. Tickets for most artists are $7.99 plus tax and $9.99 plus tax. Tickets for selected artists marked with an "(a)" are $12.99 plus tax and $14.99 plus tax. Showtimes for all concerts are 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
