The Grand Ole Opry celebrated Dolly Parton’s 50th anniversary as an Opry member on Oct. 12 with two sold-out shows honoring the country icon.

Special guest performers included Dierks Bentley, Emmylou Harris, Chris Janson, Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, Margo Price, Hank Williams Jr., and more.

Dolly took the stage during both shows (7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m.) to perform a cache of her fan-favorite hits, including “Joshua,” “Jolene,” “My Tennessee Mountain Home,” “Coat of Many Colors,” “Here You Come Again,” “9 to 5” and “I Will Always Love You.”

Between shows, Tennessee’s Governor Bill Lee presented Dolly with a proclamation declaring October 12 as Dolly Parton Day.

If you weren’t lucky enough to watch the show in person, you can still catch all of the action on TV—albeit six weeks later. The two-hour TV special, Dolly Parton: 50 Years at the Grand Ole Opry, will debut on NBC on Nov. 26 at 9 p.m. ET. The show will feature new interviews and Opry performances from Dolly, Dierks Bentley, Emmylou Harris, Chris Janson, Toby Keith, Lady Antebellum, Margo Price, Hank Williams Jr. and more.
