Dolly Parton first released her song “Coat of Many Colors” in 1971, and in the tune she poignantly details how her impoverished mother sewed rags together to give a young Parton a multi-colored coat.
There’s no stopping Dolly Parton. NBC’s special about the country icon’s early life, Coat of Many Colors, was so successful that the company announced Wednesday they will produce a sequel, Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love, for release this holiday season.
NBC has billed this holiday special as the “true story” behind “Coat of Many Colors,” the country hit Dolly Parton wrote about the jacket her mother stitched together for her from a basket of rags. Though, as any true Parton fan knows, trying to fact-check her life story is like searching for the cherry tree that George Washington chopped down.
