Grand Ole Opry icon Minnie Pearl has been showing off her wide smile once again in Nashville. This time it’s at Madame Tussauds wax museum.

Minnie Pearl's wax figure was debuted at the Christmas parade on Saturday.

It's a 1960's-era replica of the country comedian and took about four months to create.

Her family said seeing the figure brings back so many memories.

"Any types of appearances she did, she would just call and say, ‘You want to go with me today?’” said Barbara Sanders. “And as a teenager, that was so fun for me. It was fun to go to her home, to have family get togethers at her home, just really hang out with her."

You can see Minnie Pearl and other country singers when the wax museum opens in the spring of 2017 at Opry Mills.
