“I am so excited to announce my new Christmas album ‘A Holly Dolly Christmas.’ I have recorded several Christmas classics like "Holly Jolly Christmas", as well as some new material that I hope might become Christmas classics. I've recorded 5 duets with 5 very special artists as you can see,” states Dolly. “I figured since everybody probably wouldn't get to celebrate Christmas as usual this year, I wanted to be creative instead of sitting around at the house this summer. So I put on my mask, gloves and practiced social distancing, as well as all of the wonderful musicians and singers, and we proceeded to put together what I think is some of the best work that I've ever done. Kent Wells produced the album. As you know, Kent has been my friend, band leader and producer for many years. He's outdone himself on this one. I'm just hoping that you're gonna love it as much as we loved putting it together. So enjoy and MERRY CHRISTMAS!”, elaborates Dolly.
