One of the auction’s featured items is Dolly Parton’s Swarovski-crystal-studded dulcimer, which is estimated at $50,000 to $100,000. Dolly recently performed with the dulcimer during her 50th Anniversary Opry celebration in October 2019.

“Seeing my country music community suffer due to the pandemic has broken my heart,” says Dolly. “It was important to donate the dulcimer that was designed for my 50th Opry Anniversary so we can raise awareness and much needed funds to keep these folks on their feet before we can open the doors to our stages once again.”

Christie’s auction dates and additional lots donated by Reba McEntire, Tim McGraw, Marty Stuart, Bernie Taupin and Trisha Yearwood will be announced soon.
