Please discuss. I want to hear opposing opinions.
Who honestly cares? It is what it is, regardless of what you call it. The name is just marketing.

I agree. Although, her position in the community is largely titular.

It's mostly southerners on vacation. Most of the people that I run into when I'm in Gatlinburg are from some reasonable driving distance (2-4 hours) away and are from the south.

I would imagine that the typical person/family who attends the show will either be indifferent to or won't like the name change.
