Dolly Parton is releasing a Christmas album, slated to be released on October 2, 2020, her first in 30 years.
A Holly Dolly Christmas will feature five original songs written by Dolly along with duets. Featured artists on the album are her god-daughter Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus, Willie Nelson, Jimmy Fallon, and her brother Randy Parton.
“I am so excited to announce my new Christmas album ‘A Holly Dolly Christmas.’ I have recorded several Christmas classics like “Holly Jolly Christmas”, as well as some new material that I hope might become Christmas classics. I’ve recorded 5 duets with 5 very special artists as you can see,” states Dolly in a release. “I figured since everybody probably wouldn’t get to celebrate Christmas as usual this year, I wanted to be creative instead of sitting around at the house this summer. So I put on my mask, gloves and practiced social distancing, as well as all of the wonderful musicians and singers, and we proceeded to put together what I think is some of the best work that I’ve ever done. Kent Wells produced the album. As you know, Kent has been my friend, band leader and producer for many years. He’s outdone himself on this one. I’m just hoping that you’re gonna love it as much as we loved putting it together. So enjoy and MERRY CHRISTMAS!”, elaborates Dolly.
