PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. -

Dolly Parton announced a major expansion to Dollywood Wednesday morning.

The country music singer-songwriter announced she is expanding her Pigeon Forge theme park over the next 10 years.

The $300 million project is expected to bring new roller coasters in 2014 and a resort hotel in 2015.

The resort, called "Dream More", is one of several Parton has in mind.

The expansion will also bring thousands of jobs to the area.

Parton additionally announced she'll be releasing a new album late Fall or early next year.  She will tour through Europe and Australia to promote the CD.

Parton hopes to bring Imagination Library to Australia, and will hold a fund-raising concert at Dollywood in the near future to help benefit the program.
