Auditions take place in Birmingham, Ala., on Jan. 14, Spartanburg, S.C., on Jan 28, and at Dollywood on Feb. 18-19. The auditions give performers an opportunity to showcase their abilities for members of Dollywood's award-winning entertainment team.

"We have an impressive level of quality talent at Dollywood," said Dollywood entertainment director Paige Bales. "Each year we challenge ourselves to continue our high standard of entertainment, and it all begins with the people we are able to find at each of our auditions. We've helped a number of entertainers launch great careers and we're excited to see who we'll discover next."

During the open call auditions, Dollywood Entertainment is looking for singers with experience in country, musical theater or pop. The auditions are only for singers or singers who move. An audition call for small, roving bluegrass groups will take place at the Feb. 19 Dollywood audition only.
