Dolly Parton Is Hosting a Virtual Christmas Concert This Friday and You're Invited
We've been having A Holly Dolly Christmas since, oh, early October when the Smoky Mountain Songbird's new album of holiday tunes first came out. Now, we're excited to get a very special November jolt of yuletide joy thanks to an exciting announcement from Amazon Music.
This Friday, November 13 at 10 a.m. PT / 1 p.m. ET, Parton will perform music from her latest record and participate in a live Q&A with fans. Billed as "Dolly Parton's Comin' Home for Christmas," the event will be hosted by Emmy Award winning actor, Leslie Jordan, on Amazon Music’s Twitch channel, within the Amazon Music mobile app via Twitch, and on Amazon.com/live. The experience will help promote a good cause as Amazon Music and Amazon Live have collaborated with Parton to raise awareness for Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library, a nonprofit that mails free children's books to families in need. The livestream will include a link for viewers interested in learning more about the organization.
Got some inquiries for Parton? You can leave your questions for the live Q&A via the comments section on her Instagram post below, or on her Twitter or Facebook accounts.
In anticipation of the virtual event, you can shop Dolly Parton’s Amazon Music store to find exclusive items such as shirts, hoodies, and phone accessories. As a bonus, Amazon Music is also unveiling two exclusive tracks from A Holly Dolly Christmas, “The Wishbook” and “Three Candles," along with Parton's new 8-track and cassette for A Holly Dolly Christmas, each including a special track.
"The memories of home and the joy that surrounds the holiday season made Comin' Home for Christmas the perfect title for this very special event with Amazon Music,” Dolly Parton shared in the press release announcing Friday's event. “Even though this year has in many ways kept us apart from one another, I hope this special will bring us all together!"
We couldn't agree more. Here's to a Friday Fun Break.
