Dolly Parton is shepherding in the holiday season as she releases the second track from her upcoming "A Holly Dolly Christmas" album, available everywhere on October 2nd. For her latest release, Dolly is taking on one of her childhood favorites, "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," as only she can.
"I have always loved 'I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus' because it's a song I heard growing up," says Dolly. "I wanted to do something for the kids and I think it's a real cute little song. I have a child-like spirit and I love everything about Christmas!"
The song follows Dolly's first release from her holiday album, "Mary Did You Know?," which joins an impressive series of faith-based music Parton has released throughout her career, including her recent Christian chart-topper with Zach Williams, "There Was Jesus."
Releasing on Butterfly Records in partnership with 12Tone Music, "A Holly Dolly Christmas" is Dolly's first holiday album in 30 years and includes some of the timeless Christmas songs we all know and love, as well as a few original tracks. Five of the 12 tracks were written solely by Dolly with one additional co-write with Kent Wells. Duet partners and featured artists on the album are some of Dolly's dearest friends including Michael Bublé, Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon and Willie Nelson, plus a special song with her brother, Randy Parton.
"A Holly Dolly Christmas" is available now worldwide for digital pre-add/pre-save/pre-order, exclusive pre-order bundles, and physical pre-order.
