Country legend Dolly Parton's first country album in 30 years,  A Holly Dolly Christmas, arrived via Santa's sleigh on October 2. It includes "Christmas Is," a statement on the reason for the season featuring Parton's goddaughter, Miley Cyrus.

A Holly Dolly Christmas features performances from Miley's dad Billy Ray Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon, Willie Nelson, Parton's brother Randy Parton and Michael Bublé. The album includes five original tracks self-written by Dolly and one song co-written with Kent Wells.

The first single from the album will be "Cuddle Up, Cozy Down Christmas," featuring Michael Bublé.

The album is available for pre-order here.

"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," Parton said in a statement. "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."
