The 74-year-old Parton told People she wanted the album, “A Holly Dolly Christmas,” to be “cute and clever,” noting the title was inspired by the famous Burl Ives classic, “A Holly Jolly Christmas.”
“He used to be on all of my Christmas specials through the years,” Parton told the magazine of Ives. “I think of him as ‘Mr. Christmas.’ I thought, ‘Why don’t I call it something cute and clever like that, or ‘Deck the Halls with Boughs of Dolly’—something corny like that.”
