We're calling it right now: Dolly Parton's upcoming Christmas album is going to totally *sleigh* the charts this holiday season.
As a (very!) early Christmas present, Dolly gave Good Housekeeping an exclusive teaser from A Holly Dolly Christmas, her first holiday album in 30 years. Though we have to wait until October 2, 2020 for the entire collection of tracks to drop, the below clip of Dolly singing the emotional holiday tune "Mary, Did You Know?" already has us in the holiday spirit.
"I got very emotional recording 'Mary, Did You Know?'," Dolly revealed on Instagram this week. "It’s the sweetest song about beautiful things being born out of unexpected situations and that’s a message we all need to hear now more than ever."
Apart from "Mary, Did You Know?," a press release notes that Dolly will be teaming up with Michael Bublé on a brand new single called "Cuddle Up, Cozy Down Christmas." She'll also be collaborating with Jimmy Fallon, Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, and Willie Nelson for different songs on A Holly Dolly Christmas. What's more, Dolly fans can also expect a special song with her brother, Randy Parton.
“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," Dolly said in the press release. "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."
We're sold! If you're interested in buying Dolly's new album, you can pre-order A Holly Dolly Christmas on iTunes or Amazon now, or head on over to Spotify, Deezer, or Apple Music to pre-save the album.
