But nominee Dolly Parton stole the show forming a half circle of people around her to say hello and snap a photo with her.
O’Dell’s playlist included ’90s hits and modern day chart toppers, and as the night went on tunes like Mariah Carey’s “Honey” and Luis Fonsi’s “Despacito” even got attendees singing and dancing in front of the ice cream bar.
