Country music icon Dolly Parton was at the right place at the right time while filming Netflix's 'Christmas on the Square'! More here...

We are 99.9 percent sure Dolly Parton is an actual angel in disguise! During the filming of Netflix’s Christmas on the Square, the 74-year-old pulled 9-year-old actress Talia Hill out of the path of an oncoming vehicle.

As Inside Edition reports, the youngster had gone off to get some hot chocolate during a break. As she was returning to her mark, she felt someone grab her and pull her away from danger.

“I looked up and it was Dolly Parton,” Talia shared with the outlet. “I was like, surprised, I was like [gasp].”

“And she’s like, ‘Well, I am an angel, you know,’ ” she added. “Cause she plays an angel in the movie. And I was in shock. She hugged me and shook me and said, ‘I saved your life!'”

Talia’s 16-year-old brother Tristian, who also appears in Christmas on the Square, also talked about what it was like working with the country music icon. “When you think of Dolly Parton, you are just like, ‘It is Dolly Parton,’ but when you actually see her you are like, ‘Wow, it’s Dolly Parton,’ being in her presence lifts you,” he explained. “She is so amazing.”

Talia continued, “When Dolly walked in she smelled like heaven. She greeted everyone even if you were a trashcan person. It was such a great feeling.”

Obviously Dolly has made a huge impression on these two siblings and we are thankful that Talia wasn’t injured!

Watch Talia tell her story at the 3:35 mark below! 

Christmas on the Square is streaming now on Netflix and also stars Christine Baranski, Jenifer Lewis, Treat Williams, and Jeanine Mason! Share this heartwarming story with other fans!

Song Lyrics

Merry Christmas (merry Christmas, merry Christmas)
Merry Christmas to everyone (merry Christmas)
Christmas on the square
Everybody’s there
Laughin’, singin’, bells a-ringin’
Snow is in the air
Carolers sing and gifts exchanged
Lovers walk in pairs
Trees a’glow and mistletoe
It’s Christmas on the square
Christmas on the square
Catch me if you dare
Runnin’ frantic, playful antics
Jokesters everywhere
Streets alight with snowball fights
You better duck, beware
Friends and neighbors cuttin’ capers
Christmas on the square
Together as each year
We joyfully meet here
To celebrate family and friends
And we all stick together
No matter whatever
It’s a wonderful town we live in (howdy, friends)
Christmas on the square
Nothing ordinar’
It’s a holly, dolly, Christmas folly
I had to get that in there (why not?)
Coats and hats and such as that
And thermal underwear (underwear)
Scarves and sweaters
Furs and feathers
Christmas on the square
Come on, boys, I know you wanna play some
Yee-haw (well, swing your partner ’round and ’round)
Ah, you always fiddlin’ around down here (what fun)
Well, all this celebratin’, all this music and dancin’
Is makin’ me hungry (well, what you got cookin’?)
There’s turkey and stuffin’
And cranberry muffins
Potatoes and gravy and peas (yummy)
Cakes, ham and biscuits
However you fix it
You’re in for a fabulous feast (let’s eat)
Christmas on the square
Everybody’s there
Sleighs and skates and chestnuts baked
Everybody shares (everybody)
Dancing mimes and such good times
I hope to see you there (see you there)
So come on down, enjoy our town
Christmas on the square
Oh, what fun for everyone
Christmas on the square (hey, fiddler)
Christmas on the square (banjo, banjo)
Christmas on the square
Celebrate, let’s celebrate
Christmas on the square
Come on down, yee-haw
