In December 2015, Dolly Parton gave fans an early Christmas gift with the NBC special Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors. Audiences will get to revisit the Parton family with Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love airing Wednesday, Nov. 30, at 9 p.m. Eastern on NBC.
Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors centered around the true story of Parton's life. We got a look at the Parton family and how the icon grew up struggling, working to overcome tragedy and that famous patchwork coat that inspired her.
In the brand-new holiday special, Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, we revisit the Partons, who have to deal with a life-changing event. But it is a Christmas miracle that brings the family closer together.
