It's that time of year to embrace the Christmas spirit, and Dolly Parton is helping us do just that with a new Christmas special. 

What is Dolly Parton's 2022 Christmas special?

The country icon's new NBC special, Dolly Parton's Mountain Magic Christmas, premiered on Thursday, December 1. The movie musical is set at the star's Tennessee amusement park, Dollywood, and features stars like Jimmy Fallon (with whom she shares a Christmas song), Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus, Willie Nelson, and more.

"I just feel like that it was time for me to do another special like this, with good music, with comedy, with meaningful things," Parton told People. "And to kind of make you feel entertained for a couple hours just to get away from everything else."

She continued, "Being magical is to lift up out of yourself and your troubles for a little while. To me, if you can even do that, even with one song, then that is magical. I just think the whole idea of trying to make things uplifting is magic within itself."

Below, find out how you can watch Parton's new Christas special.
