Dolly Parton will star alongside Megyn Price, Brian McKnight and Desiree Ross in the upcoming Lifetime Original Movie A Country Christmas Story. The movie is set to premiere on Lifetime on November 9 at 8/7c.
A Country Christmas Story follows a young bi-racial Appalachian Mountain girl played by Desiree Ross as she defies her mother, portrayed by Megyn Price, and goes against stereotype to pick up a guitar in pursuit of becoming a country music star. Her journey to the stage at Dollywood and a singing competition hosted by Dolly reunites her with her musician father, played by Brian McKnight, and uncovers the musical legacy of African Americans in country music.
Besides staring in a new movie, Dolly has announced her Blue Smoke World Tour, which kicks off in 2014 and includes shows in Europe and Australia. The tour is in support of her new album, Blue Smoke, with a release date to be announced soon.
