NBC announced that ‘Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas’ is set to premiere Dec. 1 on NBC. The cast for the 2-hour holiday program includes Jimmy Fallon, Willie Nelson, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmie Allen, Zach Williams and Miley Cyrus.
The network said in a press release: “The film will include a pair of Dolly’s iconic songs — “9 to 5” and “I Will Always Love You” — as well as a new holiday melody. In all, there are numerous songs that capture the spirit of Christmas and the importance of gathering with family during the holidays.” Tom Everett Scott, Angel Parker, Ana Gasteyer, Mary Lane Haskell, Bryan Batt, Brendan Bradley, John Newberg, Rachel Parton George, Cassie Parton Griffith, Rhoda Griffis, Liam Rauhoff and Steve Summers will also appear in the contemporary movie musical.

The country music icon will be inducted into the ‘Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’ next month as part of the Class of 2022. The 37th Annual Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony will air on Saturday, November 19th at 8 pm ET/PT on HBO and be available to stream on HBO Max.
