Dolly Parton sets second show at the Ryman

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Dolly Parton will be playing a second show this summer at Ryman Auditorium.

The concert, which benefits the Opry Trust Fund, is set for Saturday, Aug. 1, at 8 p.m.

Tickets go on sale through Ticketmaster and Ryman.com at 10 a.m. Thursday.

Parton has been a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1969.

"It's important to me to be able to do a concert for the Opry Trust Fund as so many of my old Opry friends have benefited from it through the years. The money raised will go to help fund the medical needs and hospitalization for those who are not able to afford it and need the help. I am proud to be of help in any way," said Parton in a news release.

Parton's show at the Ryman on July 31 sold out in record time, ranking among the fastest in the venue's history.
