Dolly Parton is helping to brighten our spirits this Holiday Season with her upcoming album, “A Holly Dolly Christmas” coming out on October 2, 2020, worldwide.
Grammy-winning, entertainment icon, Dolly Parton, is helping to make 2020 a little bit brighter globally with the announcement of her brand new Christmas album, “A Holly Dolly Christmas” coming out on October 2, 2020. The upcoming holiday album, releasing on Butterfly Records in partnership with 12Tone Music, is Dolly’s first holiday album in 30 years. This festive collection of music includes some of the timeless Christmas songs we all know and love, as well as a few original tracks from Dolly. Dolly solely wrote 5 songs on the album and 1 additional co-write with Kent Wells. The album also features incredible duets with some of Dolly’s dearest friends including Michael Bublé, Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon and Willie Nelson, plus a special song with her brother, Randy Parton.
“A Holly Dolly Christmas” is available now worldwide for digital pre-add/pre-save/pre-order, exclusive pre-order bundles, and physical pre-order.
The first single coming off “A Holly Dolly Christmas,” will be her beautiful duet with vocal powerhouse, Michael Bublé, “Cuddle Up, Cozy Down Christmas.”
“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. “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.
