I thought that 2018's Dumplin' was fantastic.

/ it's relevant because Dolly. Dolly is a national treasure.

Dolly Parton is so beloved that when Rhinestone came out and the Razzies nominated it for almost every single category, they spared her.

Is it gonna be like A Very Murray Christmas and Michael Bolton's Big Sexy Valentine's Day Special?

If so, I'm in. If not, I'm in (but reluctantly).

I hope it is better than the Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. That was the worst porno ever! All they did was sing and I never got to see Dolly's goodies!

I love Dolly Parton.

When my Dad went all out one Christmas and bought a cassette player (it was like $50), our two tapes were Dolly and Dean (Martin).

I've been catching up on old episodes of the podcast RadioLab recently, which included portions of their mini-series, Dolly Parton's America. I imagine anyone interested in her would like the series.

I heard she stuffs.

There's too much boob in there for there to be any room for tissue.

As much as I love Dolly, I dislike holiday music. In my head this is like dividing by 0.

/when I was 17, I worked the Christmas season at Macy*s at the Esplinade Mall in Kenner, LA
//After 6 weeks of 4-6 hours a night of Xmas music, I still cringe when I hear any.

She is a national treasure.  A woman who's life would easily make any lifetime movie about women coming up in a mans world and rather than pouting she DID IT!!!  And is such a legend!  God bless her!!  Love her to death.  I think she is so darned sweet and nice!  Ive heard of TONS of stories of people meeting her and she is so nice to fans....

For her ability to hold the worlds largest DIVA cup, nope she is as nice as can be and can sing like an angel...

Do you think Dolly Parton would be proud of us?

I don't know how anyone who ever worked retail can stand holiday music. The only song I can even kind of like is Jill Sobule's Christmas From the Family.

Also, Kay Parker was in it...which makes the lack of actual sex all the more frustrating.

What a woman.

Will Dolly play the accordion?

Don't tempt fate, subby. This is 2020, you tempt fate and the next Dolly Parton headline might be "Beloved entertainer Dolly Parton was crushed to death under a tractor".

People seem to love her squeezebox.

God, I hope it's better than the little series she did for Netflix or Amazon, or whatever. They were each stories based around one of her songs. Jolene was one. We sat thru two, and they had all of the punch of. Hallmark movie that didn't make the cut. Even my wife, who loves those Hallmark blah-fests felt they were just flat and uninteresting. But it's Dolly, so it's worth a second chance for sure. As has been mentioned, the woman is a true national treasure.

Had a little moment of confusion there. Diva Cup is the name of a menstrual cup and I was wondering what the hell you were talking about!

She can do whatever she wants and no one will complain.

It's ok. My uncle was crushed under a tractor 2 weeks ago. Perhaps the good lord got his quota. Although I haven't seen the sales projections for this year. Perhaps a JW has the power point presentation?

Welp, there was the duet with David Bowie and Bing Crosby, so I want Dolly and Ozzy.

Nope a mini saxophone like at that British music festival.
