Dolly and Wells both performed at the banquet. 

“I thought I was going to sneak down and it be a suprise. It’s the biggest show I’ve down in ages but anyway it’s the biggest show I’ve done in ages. But anyway I’m happy to be here and I’m happy I could come down and be part of it” said Dolly Parton.
