Published December 3, 2015 / Last Updated December 6, 2015

The cast of “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” share personal stories about the making of the film, their favorite Dolly songs and more!

This December, Dolly Parton’s childhood memory that inspired a country music hit and later became a children’s book, will premiere as the NBC movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat Of Many Colors.” The stars of Dolly’s new movie shared stories of how they bonded, much like the real Parton family, over movie nights, pool parties and field trips. To hear them talk about the experience, one might wonder how they managed to get the movie made. However, they did, and their excitement about the finished product is contagious.

Step behind the scenes as Ricky shares a touching note from Dolly, Farrah reveals her favorite Dolly song and see why playing “Little Dolly” is a career highlight for Alyvia Alyn.

Discover more about Dolly’s new movie from the stars themselves. See full interviews and MORE!
