Christmas Music Playlists with Dolly Parton Songs
Here You Come Again Christmas
Factfile - Dolly Parton
- Dolly Parton's 1984 double platinum album, Once Upon A Christmas, featured many duets with Kenny Roger. The album was accompanied by a now classic CBS Christmas television special titled Kenny & Dolly: A Christmas to Remember
- Her second holiday album was released in 1990: Home For Christmas.
- Also of note are Parton's appearances in 1982 musical The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, the 1986 movie A Smoky Mountain Christmas and the 1988 show Bob Hope's Jolly Christmas.
Dolly Parton has plenty of strings to her bow but when all is said and done it will probably be her country music repertoire that she will be best remembered for. She is a prolific songwriter with thousands of songs to her name, proving quite convincingly that she is much more than just a 9 to 5 act. Not surprising then to find quite a few Christmas songs that have the Dolly stamp all over them. Her first brush with the season came when she starred in the 1982 musical 'The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas' where she sang parts of the Carol Hall penned 'Hard Candy Christmas' (which incidentally is not really about Christmas at all) towards the end of the movie. 2 years later in 1984 and Dolly certainly ramped up the Christmas stakes with a dedicated festive album called 'Once Upon A Christmas'. It was released in tandem with a TV special called 'Kenny & Dolly: A Christmas to Remember' which featured country legend Kenny Rogers who duets on many of the tracks. Among the highlights are original tracks 'The Greatest Gift of All', 'A Christmas To Remember' and a medley of traditional favourites 'Winter Wonderland/Sleigh Ride'. This was to be the first of many occasions where the popular country stars would join forces. 'Once Upon A Christmas' proved to have enduring appeal so it was no surprise to see a second Dolly Parton Christmas album arrive in 1990. Unlike its predecessor 'Home For Christmas' contained no original material with Dolly instead weaving her magic on a mix of secular and non-seculars songs like 'Santa Claus Is Coming to Town', 'O Little Town Of Bethlehem' and 'Jingle Bells' as well as reminiscing on her special Christmastime's as a child growing up in the Smokey Mountains. Speaking of which Dolly starred in a 1986 television movie called 'A Smoky Mountain Christmas', a piece of whimsy that nonetheless contained some great Christmas performances from the singer. She wrote and sang several of her own Christmas songs for the movie such as the singalong 'I'd Like To Spend Christmas With Santa' and the barnstorming '(I've Been Dreaming of) A Smoky Mountain Christmas'. Dolly made another appearance on a Christmas TV special in 1988, this time hosted by Bob Hope called 'Bob Hope's Jolly Christmas Show', in which she sang 'Hard Candy Christmas' and 'Silver Bells'.
