Dolly shares some special Christmas stories and sends a holiday message to Jolene.

It’s Christmas and Dolly is sharing a few of her favorite childhood memories. She recalls the excitement in their home when it came time to get and decorate a tree. This tender memory comes to life within the lyrics of “Comin’ Home For Christmas.” The handmade ornaments and tinfoil star were some of the most treasured in those days, mainly because of the special care and love her mother put into the preparations. Dolly said,

“In those early days, we didn’t even have electricity so we didn’t have electric lights for it. Mama was always great with making things out of colored paper or different rags that she would tie. We could make bows out of colored rags…Mama always made everything special.”

Dolly shares this memory and more in her Christmas message. She also adds a last-minute holiday message for Jolene.

Published November 24, 2020 / Last Updated November 24, 2020

There’s a new exclusive line of holiday cards and a custom e-card spotlighting a song from Dolly’s #1 Album A Holly Dolly Christmas

Dolly Parton and American Greetings announce their latest collaboration, A Holly Dolly Christmas Collection, just in time for the holidays. Spurred by the success of Dolly’s initial Everyday Card collection and her SmashUp “Birthday Time” e-card, these holiday cards in collaboration with the global superstar will bring more joy, hope, love and laughter to families around the world. Dolly said,

“Knowing that I can be a small part of making someone’s day a little brighter is such a great feeling, and this holiday season, especially, it helps to know someone you love is thinking about you.”

Earlier this year American Greetings announced a multi-year partnership with Dolly that includes digital and physical products integrating the legendary singer-songwriter’s music in unique ways. “Birthday Time,” Parton’s SmashUp initial digital ecard offering, has been sent more than 500,000 times since its launch six months ago.

“Dolly’s message of joy, hope and humor has really resonated with our customers, as evidenced by the resounding success of her SmashUp and the initial launch of her Everyday Card line,” says Rob Matousek, Executive Director/GM – Direct to Consumer Business at American Greetings. Rob went on to say,

“As we approached the holidays, we wanted to bring an additional offering of digital products to market. We believe Dolly’s curated collection of holiday cards and a musical e-card featuring her rendition of ‘Holly Jolly Christmas’ are the perfect pairing for the season.”

Discover Dolly Parton’s American Greetings holiday collection and Dolly’s everyday cards. Dolly Parton SmashUps are available on AmericanGreetings.com, BlueMountain.com and on the SmashUps apps available for iPhone and Android.

Dolly Parton and friends take to the Pandora LIVE stage for a Holiday Special Friday, December 4, 9:00 PM EST/6:00 PM PST

Virtual Event includes performances by Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Brett Eldredge and Carly Pearce

Pandora announced today that Dolly Parton will bring some holiday cheer to the Pandora LIVE stage as she’s joined by Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Brett Eldredge and Carly Pearce for a special virtual celebration on December 4, at 9:00 PM EST/6:00 PM PST. Pandora LIVE is the continuation of the popular live event turned virtual series that features top artists from all genres, including country, rock, R&B, and more. Listeners can RSVP for the free event online.

To get in the holiday spirit leading up to the event, attendees can tune into Christmas Radio and Holiday Hits on Pandora. Both stations now feature Modes, a new feature that allows users to customize their station listening experience based on a musical theme.

Special “Dear Dolly” Segment

Taking place in a Nashville studio majestically decorated for the holidays, the evening will feature each artist performing classic holiday tunes backed by Dolly’s longtime band members. Exclusive interviews will be included where the guests recall their favorite memories of Dolly and talk about their favorite holiday traditions. Additionally, children around the country will act as the evening’s interviewers, asking Dolly about her holiday traditions in a special “Dear Dolly” segment. Pandora and flavor brand McCormick will be partnering for a charitable donation to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and encourage viewers to get involved and give the gift of reading this holiday season.

Dolly Parton, an 11-time Grammy award winner and member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1969 is the first country artist to have a top 20 Billboard single across 7 consecutive decades (from the 60s through the 20s). For her Pandora LIVE performance, she’ll be performing tracks from her latest release “A Holly Dolly Christmas” which debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Country Albums and Holiday Albums chart.

Tasha Cobbs Leonard

Tasha Cobbs Leonard is one of the strongest voices in gospel music right now. Her achievements include 1 Platinum record, 3 Gold records and 600 million lifetime streams on Pandora. A Grammy winner for Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance, she is also the recipient of 13 Stellar Awards and 12 Dove Awards.

Brett Eldredge

Country music superstar Brett Eldredge’s fifth studio album “Sunday Drive” was the top-selling country album upon release, marking his fifth Top 5 on the Top Country Albums chart. His fan-favorite Christmas record “Glow” debuted at No. 2 on the country charts and features the Billboard Adult Contemporary and Holiday Music Chart-topping duet “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with Meghan Trainor. The album has spawned an annual headlining holiday tour, and he recently joined Kelly Clarkson for original duet “Under The Mistletoe.” He’s earned 1.5 billion lifetime streams on Pandora and thanks to Snapple, some of his top listeners will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual meet and greet with Brett prior to the performance.

Carly Pearce

Life comes full circle for Carly Pearce who left her Kentucky home and high school at 16 to take a job at Dollywood and is now sharing the stage with Dolly for Pandora LIVE. Carly had the most CMA Award nods for any new artist nominee this year for her No. 1 hit song “I Hope You’re Happy Now” and took home this year’s trophy for Musical Event of the Year.

Event sponsors have helped to create a truly unique virtual event experience that brings interactive fan activities and exclusive content together in an innovative and engaging way. Leading up to the show, Sierra® will get fans in the holiday spirit with a curated gift guide and a chance to test their artist knowledge with pre-show trivia.

Virtual Photo Booth

During the show, fans will be invited to pose in the Meow Mix virtual photo booth and partake in the interactive chat hosted by Wendy’s. CarMax will provide a limited amount of exclusive artist merchandise for attendees on a first-come, first-served code redemption basis.
