In 1990, Dolly Parton filmed a holiday special in her hometown of Sevierville, Tennessee, and featured the star’s family and friends joining her in singing Christmas classics.
“I used my mom and dad, my brothers and sisters, my aunts and uncles, and my nieces and nephews. We have things like cookie baking, and a hayride, and we just have some wonderful times that I really think people are going to enjoy.”
The television special, Home For Christmas, was released to accompany her Christmas album of the same name. The album was a follow-up to her 1984 holiday duet album with Kenny Chesney titled Home For Christmas. Unlike the duet album, Home For Christmas was full of holiday classics.
"I've always wanted to do a Christmas album of the all old traditional songs that I've always loved the best," Dolly told ET in 1990. "I don't like new Christmas songs-- even if I do write them!"
The album featured classics like The First Noel, I'll Be Home for Christmas, and Oh, Little Town of Bethlehem.
In the video below, we see Dolly joking with her family during the Home for Christmas TV special. Her sisters then join her for a beautiful rendition of Oh, Little Town of Bethlehem.
