Dolly Parton’s Guest Appearances For DVD Release

Published May 17, 2016 / Last Updated May 21, 2016

Top news and entertainment outlets will feature Dolly to talk about the DVD release of “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” coming up on May 3.

In support of the DVD release, Dolly will head out on the promotional trail and appear on “CBS This Morning,” “700 Club,” “Access Hollywood,” GAC’s “Great American Playlist,” CMT’s “Hot Twenty Countdown,” “Fox411,” and more.

Fans can experience the magic and warmth of the television movie event based on the inspiring true story of living legend Dolly Parton’s remarkable upbringing in rural Tennessee.

This once-in-a-lifetime special takes place inside the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome a devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith and a raggedy patchwork coat — vividly described in the well-known song of the film’s title — that helped make Dolly who she is today. Set in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955, this poignant and uplifting family-friendly story follows the incidents in Dolly and her family’s life around the time she was nine years old. Dolly said,

“It is my true belief that if you’re lucky enough to have a good mother, that is the greatest gift that you will ever know. So many people responded to my Mother in the ‘Coat of Many Colors’ movie not only because of the wonderful job that Jennifer Nettles did portraying her, but the love and attention that Mama gave to all of her children.”

Dolly’s 2009 live DVD/CD recording featuring special backstage footage and concert soundtracks

On her 2008 “Backwoods Barbie” tour, Dolly recorded a PBS special entitled “Dolly: Live in London O2 Arena” which was released in 2009 as a combination CD/DVD called “Dolly: Live From London.”

 Live from London – Available on iTunes

Dolly came to the idea of a DVD after reviewing the footage from her performance in London.

“We thought it was about time. We were really inspired after we did our European tour last year. In London, we worked at the O2 Arena, and the audience was just so great, and the place was just so wonderful, and we had such good footage when we got home, we thought this was just too good to put in the archives and hold for another time. We edited it down, and we thought it would be a great idea, to put the CD and the DVD in one package.”

The DVD includes 50 minutes of special material like behind-the-scenes footage and concert sound-checks.
