Last year, Dolly Parton’s film entitled “The Coat of Many Colors” premiered and had so many talking about the story. The movie is based on the motivating true story about the life of the remarkable Dolly Parton. The entire movie takes place within the unique Parton family as they struggle with everyday life and some devastating news. The message within the story shows how the family healed through the power of faith, love and that patchwork coat of many colors that made Dolly who she is today.

In line with that heart-warming story, Dolly now presents “Christmas of Many Colors; Circle of Love.”
