Legendary singer Dolly Parton stopped by the Tennessee tourist attraction to meet a fan by the name of Gage Blackwell who has Down syndrome, and made his dreams come true by referring to the aspiring singer as "Gage Rogers", in reference to her long-time collaborator Kenny Rogers, as they belted out country classic “Islands in the Stream”.

They also performed Jolene, 9 to 5, and Johnny Cash's Ring of Fire, among other tunes.

Blackwell later detailed his experience on Facebook, writing, "This was the best!!!!!! I love Dolly and I want to marry her!!!!"
