If anyone can spread a little cheer over this godforsaken year, it is national treasure Dolly Parton. The country superstar is releasing a festive album called A Holly Dolly Christmas on October 2. It is comprised of classic carols and new songs. “I am so excited to announce my new Christmas album A Holly Dolly Christmas,” she reveals in the press release. “I have recorded several Christmas classics like ‘Holly Jolly Christmas,’ as well as some new material that I hope might become Christmas classics.”

Here’s where it gets really interesting. “I’ve recorded five duets with five very special artists,” Dolly elaborates. “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. 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.”

Who did the living legend collaborate with? Well, Michael Bublé joins her for lead single “Cuddle Up, Cozy Down Christmas,” while Miley Cyrus teams up with her godmother for “Christmas Is.” Other guests include Willie Nelson, Billy Ray Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon (?!).
