Christmas is coming early this year!
Country icon, Dolly Parton is releasing her first Christmas album in 30 years, titled “Holly Dolly Christmas”. The album includes originals and holiday standards and features Parton dueting with famous friends such as Michael Bublé, Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon, as well as her brother, Randy.
Dolly told Billboard that she came up with the title to pay homage to her own favorite Christmas song. “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.’”
Holly Dolly Christmas is scheduled to release October 2nd.
