Where did the name 'Mountain Butterfly' come from??
It was inspired not only by Dolly's love of butterflies as well as the mountains of East Tennessee (and the song 'Love is Like a Butterfly') but another song that was written for her;
For Dollywood's 25th Anniversary, employees wanted to do something special for Dolly. Malcolm Link, a popular, longtime performer at Dollywood wrote a beautiful tune for her called 'Little Butterfly,' presenting it at a gathering for employees - and Dolly - in the Pines Theater. Malcolm's performance was accompanied by a slide presentation on a giant screen with pictures ranging from Dolly's parents to the Sevierville High School Marching Band holding up signs. Visibly surprised and moved, Dolly appeared to be overwhelmed and holding back tears."No one's ever written a song for me before," she told the crowd.
Malcolm, a talented singer, songwriter and musician, has appeared on virtually every stage at Dollywood in the 20-plus years he has been there, including the Kinfolks and Dolly's family shows. More about Malcolm and the song 'Little Butterfly' (available for download) here;
Proceeds from sales of Little Butterfly' will go to Dolly's Imagination Library Foundation

Love is like a butterfly, as soft and gentle as a sigh
The multicolored moods of love are like its satin wings....
Love makes your heart feel strange inside, it flutters like soft wings in flight,
Love is like a butterfly, a rare and gentle thing
- Love is Like a Butterfly, Dolly Parton
