“Or, some of our relatives that had a little more than we did, they’d get one. So I remember the year that Randy was born around Christmas, Mama said, ‘Hey, come here, look. We’ve got your own walking, talking doll. He actually cries real tears, he pees real pee, and he’s like your walking, talking doll.’”

Parton reveals she had actually been working on the Christmas album for a while, but when the pandemic hit, she found reason to finally finish it. “A few years back, I had thought about doing a Christmas album. And I was kind of working on it, and then I started doing promotion on the ‘Dumplin’’ movie that I did with Jennifer Aniston, so I put it on hold. But when the COVID hit, we were all kinda holed up anyway. And I thought, ‘Oh, what a perfect time for me to write some new songs and continue with the Christmas album.’”

A Holly Dolly Christmas was officially released on October 2nd, 2020. The album also features guest appearances from Michael Bublé, Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon, and Willie Nelson. Have you listened to it yet?
