Dolly Parton Is Making A Christmas TV Special
It looks as if Dolly Parton is set to give reigning Christmas queen Mariah Carey a run for her money! The country music legend has announced she will be fronting her very own holiday show for the first time.
Titled A Holly Dolly Christmas, the jolly one-off special will see Dolly, 74, perform an intimate candle-lit set, singing both festive numbers, carols and religious hymns.
The Tennessee-native will also be sharing Christmas stories and faith-based recollections of the Yuletide season with viewers at home, as well as performing tracks from her upcoming Christmas album also titled A Holly Dolly Christmas.
The show will air on Sunday, December 6th on American network CBS. A UK airdate and availability are currently TBC.
Speaking about her new venture, Dolly said: "I am so proud to be a part of the CBS family this holiday season with my new Christmas special."
Elsewhere, Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music & Live Events/Alternative & Reality for CBS said: "When Dolly Parton calls and tells you she wants to do a Christmas show, you don't hesitate.
