The day has finally come for Dolly Parton to unveil her holiday special. Tonight the world will get the chance to unwrap the gift of “A Holly Dolly Christmas.”
Fans of Parton and the holiday season have been eagerly awaiting this special since its announcement last month.
How “A Holly Dolly Christmas” Came to Be
Back in early October, Dolly released her first Christmas album in over three decades. The album, “Holly Dolly Christmas” features twelve tracks and some special guests. Guest appearances on the album include Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Michael Bublé.
Shortly after releasing the album, Dolly got in touch with CBS. She told them that she wanted to record a Christmas special. Like most people, the folks at CBS know that when Dolly asks to perform, you don’t turn her down. So, they got to work putting it together.
