The legendary Dolly Parton’s much anticipated 2-hour Christmas special, Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas, airs Thursday night at 8pm EST on December 1, 2022 on NBC. "I got together with some very talented friends and they helped me make a Christmas special!” Dolly Parton shared on social media.
"A meta-musical about the making of a Christmas movie, Parton’s new holiday special is a star-studded event and will feature Jimmy Fallon, Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus, Willie Nelson, Jimmie Allen, and Zach Williams, with whom Parton released “There Was Jesus” in 2019 on Williams’ album Rescue Story. Parton also put out a holiday album in 2020, A Holly Dolly Christmas. The deluxe version with eight new tracks dropped in October" according to ET Online.
“Christmas is a time to be joyful,” Parton previously told American Songwriter. “I think that’s why people love it.”
Indeed, Dolly Parton loves the holiday season. From choosing between eggs or ham in the morning to listening to Christmas songs throughout the day. It’s a chance to entertain and catch up with family, a chance to celebrate with her longtime beau, her husband of many decades Carl Dean.
“I’m going to have my coffee before I have anything else,” Parton said of her Christmas morning routine. “But I might put a little whipped cream on it if it’s Christmas!”
"The icon shows no sign of slowing down this holiday season. She is newly inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and will also co-host her goddaughter Miley Cyrus’s upcoming New Year’s Eve special, too."
