Dolly Parton is partnering with Amazon Music for a new Christmas special for her fans. The holiday blowout will span multiple Amazon properties.
The country music icon will bring Christmas magic to the world in her new Comin’ Home For Christmas show. The event will also feature a live Q&A session with Dolly Parton and will be hosted by Leslie Jones.
“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,” says Dolly. “Even though this year has, in many ways, kept us apart from one another, I hope this special will bring us all together!”
Dolly Parton is also partnering with Amazon Music to sell exclusive Christmas merch.
Fans of Parton can get their hands on the merch before the Christmas special airs. It includes a wide variety of t-shirts, hoodies, and even pop sockets for your smartphone. Fans who want to purchase Parton’s new Christmas album A Holly Dolly Christmas can find it along with two bonus tracks, “The Wishbook” and “Three Candles.”
Comin’ Home For Christmas will air at 10 am PST/ 12 pm EST on November 13 via Amazon Music’s Twitch channel. Amazon has worked hard to integrate Twitch streaming into Amazon Music so that it will be available there, too. Fans can also watch the live stream on Amazon Live, via their Amazon Fire tables, or the Amazon Shopping app.
Dolly Parton has leaned heavily on her faith this year during the coronavirus pandemic. The singer shared a video via social media in March, at the start of the pandemic. “Hello, it’s Dolly climbing the stairway to heaven because this virus has scared the H-E-L-L out of us,” the singer starts.
“I’m not making light of the situation,” Parton continues. “I think when this passes, we’re all going to be better people. I know that I have a positive attitude about it as negative as it seems to be right now. Just keep the faith. Don’t be too scared; it’s gonna be all right,” she reassured her fans in the video.
The message came just days after news of Kenny Rogers’ passing, a long-time friend and collaborator of Parton. At the time, she shared a thoughtful message about the passing of Rogers. “I loved Kenny with all my heart,” Parton says. “My heart is broken. A big ‘ole chunk of it has gone with him today. I think I can speak for his family, his friends, and his fans when I say that we will always love you.”
