Dolly films 'Home for Christmas,' a holiday special in her hometown with family and friends

In 1990, ABC aired Dolly’s holiday special "Home For Christmas," occasionally referred to as "Dolly Parton: Christmas at Home." The movie accompanied the release of Dolly’s Christmas album of the same name and features Dolly singing Christmas classics. In the movie, Dolly returns to Sevierville, TN, and visits many people and places she loves.

“I used my mom and dad, my brothers and sisters, my aunts and uncles, and my nieces and nephews. We have things like cookie baking, and a hayride, and we just have some wonderful times that I really think people are going to enjoy.”

Dolly takes viewers to her family home, her church, a home for the elderly and Dollywood.
