Many internet users praised the singer’s angelic voice and expressed their desire to have the album released as soon as possible. Others hailed it as a little salvation in such dark times.

The nine-time Grammy Award winner first announced her upcoming Christmas album, “A Holly Dolly Christmas,” on August 13 with a photo on Instagram. Parton looked ravishing in a red off-shoulder dress with a zig-zag design at its edges.

In the caption, she explained that the album will be released on October 2 and would feature some collaborations with Miley Cyrus, her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon, Michael Bublé, Willie Nelson, and her brother, Randy Parton.

It will also have five original songs written by her and remakes of some Christmas classics. The first track to be released from the album was “Mary Did You Know?” on August 21, and it has already been viewed over 100,000 times on YouTube.

According to reports, Parton worked with producer Kent Wells to create the body of work during the pandemic. She revealed that they kept to the COVID-19 restrictions. The collaborators also had to record their parts from their respective locations and send it.

“A Holly Dolly Christmas” will be Parton’s first holiday album in three decades. She has, however, collaborated on chart-topping tunes such as the 1984 classic, “Once Upon A Christmas” with Kenny Rogers. She also released “Home for Christmas” in 1990.

While fans are still waiting for the album, the “Coat of Colors” crooner recently made headlines when she bagged her first gospel No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart.

Her duet with Zach Williams for the song, “There Was Jesus” earned her the incredible feat. The hit tune also peaked at the top for Christian Adult Contemporary Songs.
