Dolly Parton's career has spanned nearly five decades, basically as long as I have been alive, and deservedly so...
Seriously, Dolly is talented, has charisma, is smart as Hell, sweet and not to mention just so damned lovable. Who else could make the most awesome self-deprecating quote of all time:
"It costs a lot of money to look this cheap" - Dolly Parton
Well I can not begin to list all of the ways Dolly has entertained me and made me smile since birth, but she is here to bring you her special kind of warmth for the Holidays in the Lifetime movie "A Country Christmas Story" the storyline and air dates go like this:
Grammy Award winner Dolly Parton (Nine to Five, Steel Magnolias), to star along with Megyn Price (Rules of Engagement), Brian McKnight (American Dreams), newcomer Desiree Ross (Crossing the River) in the upcoming Lifetime Original Movie A Country Christmas Story, Saturday, November 9, at 8:00 pm ET/PT.
A Country Christmas Story follows a young bi-racial Appalachian Mountain girl (Ross) as she defies her mother (Price) and goes against stereotype when she takes up guitar in pursuit of her dream of becoming a country star. Her journey to the stage at Dollywood and a singing competition hosted by Dolly Parton reunites her itinerant musician father (McKnight) with her family, as well as uncovering the musical legacy of African Americans in the world of country music. Mary Kay Place (Big Love, Being John Malkovich) will portray her grandmother.
Yep, Dolly is the bomb!
