NBC’s Christmas programming for 2022 has just started off to a fast start with a very special announcement! Dolly Parton, the reigning queen of country music, is the star of the network’s newest movie, Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas.
Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic takes place in Dollywood, Parton’s theme park in the Tennessee Smoky Mountains. The making of a network TV special is the subject of the modern movie-musical Christmas. The Three Wise Men visit Parton in this emotional holiday film, which transports audiences back in time. The entertainer learns insightful lessons that finally make her question her perceptions of the true enchantment of Christmas.
NBC and Parton have worked together before. In 2015, Parton agreed to partner with the network to create a run of TV movies based on some of her best-known songs and autobiographies. Coat of Many Colors and its follow-up, Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, had audiences completely enthralled.
In a December 2021 interview with People, Parton discussed the value of continuing to pursue your goals even after you’ve succeeded in doing so.“I have to say; it’s honest to God truth…I say I dreamed myself into a corner, meaning my dreams have come true, and with every dream, as I’ve said, you got to have something that’s going to spin off from that,” Parton told People. “You can’t just leave them there and say, ‘Oh, my dreams come true, and I’m walking out here.’ No, you have to be responsible for that—to show you’re grateful. So, I’m going to be right there until I fall over dead.”
