HERE YOU COME AGAIN
Dollywood, Dolly Partons Tennessee theme park, is an embarrassment of riches for fans of the Smoky Mountain Songbird. Its got a replica of the Appalachian cabin in which she grew up, members of her extended family working the BBQ stands, and one of her wig-and-sparkly-outfit-packed tour buses. One thing it doesnt have, however, is a transgender gospel singer doing tributes to some of Partons most soulful work. Thats why thats Tennessee, and this is New York. Tonight, catch Our Lady J in the fourth annual Gospel of Dolly. The singer, who incidentally is best buds with Harry Potters Daniel Radcliffe, will be joined by the Train-to-Kill Gospel Choir for a spiritual journey through the hits of our favorite country queen.
