Country music legend Dolly Parton will be bringing all of us some much needed Christmas cheer. Parton will release a new festive album titled “A Holly Dolly Christmas” a nod to Burl Ives who is known for his hit song “Holly Jolly Christmas”.
“I thought, ‘I think I’ll call it A Holly Dolly Christmas because I love the song “A Holly Jolly Christmas” with Burl Ives. He used to be on all of my Christmas specials all through the years. I think of him as Mr. Christmas. I thought, ‘Why don’t do I call it something cute and clever, like that or Deck the Halls with Boughs of Dolly, something corny like that.’”
the collection includes a mix of originals and holiday standards and features Parton duetting with such famous friends as Michael Bublé, Billy Ray Cyrus, goddaughter Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon and Willie Nelson, as well as with her brother Randy Parton.
Most of her duet partners recorded their parts separately from Parton, who finished the project after the COVID-19 pandemic started.
