Dolly Parton is bringing even more holiday cheer this year with the release of a new holiday special on CBS — A Holly Dolly Christmas!
The country icon previously announced that she would be starring in an upcoming Netflix film Christmas on the Square where she will be playing the role of an angel. Additionally, she’s now shared that she will be hosting a festive CBS special next month by the title A Holly Dolly Christmas.
“I am so proud to be a part of the CBS family this holiday season with my new Christmas special,” Parton said in a statement.
The CBS special shares the same title as her new holiday album, which was released last month. The CBS special will feature Parton performing songs from that album alongside other festive favorites and telling personal Christmas stories. The songs will vary from merry classics to soulful hymns and will be performed on an “intimate, candlelit set.”
“When Dolly Parton calls and tells you she wants to do a Christmas show, you don’t hesitate,” CBS executive Jack Sussman said in a statement.”A special with the multi-Grammy Award-winning, prolific songwriting, epic live performer of all time? She had us at hello.”
“There’s only one Dolly Parton, and we are so excited to be bringing her to viewers this holiday season.”
Be sure to tune in to A Holly Dolly Christmas on Sunday, Dec. 6 on CBS from 8:30-9:30 p.m. ET and 8-9 p.m. PT. The CBS special will also be available to stream both live and on-demand on CBS All-Access.
