Dolly Parton is a legend and I’ve enjoyed listening to her music since hearing “9 to 5” when I was a young girl. Not only does she sing beautifully, but her generous heart is commendable as well! I love that she has a childhood literacy program called Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library. You can read more about it here.
Just in time for the holidays, you can watch “Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas.” Experience the magic and music with this holiday special featuring Tom Everett Scott (The Summer I Turned Pretty), Angel Parker (The Rookie), Mary Lane Haskell (Christmas on the Square) and Ana Gasteyer (American Auto). The special will also boast a lineup of talented guest stars such as Jimmy Fallon, Willie Nelson, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmie Allen, Zach Williams, and singer-songwriter, Miley Cyrus, who is also Dolly’s goddaughter.
One of the things that I love to do during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend is watch holiday shows. “Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas” is one of those shows!
A modern-day movie musical about the making of a network TV special, Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas is the frenetic backstage story and delightful on-camera results of Dolly’s desire to uplift an exhausted world’s spirits by sharing the unique “mountain magic” she has always found in and around Dollywood at Christmas. Throughout the movie’s production numbers and rehearsal chaos, Dolly finds herself taking a private journey into her past, guided by the mysterious appearances of her personal Three Wise Men. When it’s time for her big special to air live, a renewed and inspired Dolly goes rogue and shows the world that the real magic of Christmas lies in the hearts of the children we all once were, the realization that Christmas is about the people we share it with, and how her faith remains the common thread between Christmases past, present, and future.
“Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas” is sure to get everyone in the holiday spirit and is available to purchase Digitally and on DVD.
