Dolly Parton is an inspiring human being on so many levels.

Be sure to catch “Dolly Parton‘s Coat of Many Colors” tonight, December 10th at 9/8c on NBC. The movie is based on the inspiring true story of Parton’s remarkable childhood in Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains. Set in 1955, the program follows the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith, and a meaningful patchwork coat that helped make Parton the success she is today. Interesting note, Sugarland‘s Jennifer Nettles portrays Parton’s mother, Avie Lee Parton.

Just one more day until #CoatOfManyColors on NBC! Who’s ready? To hold you over until then, I shared my thoughts about the movie with the New York Post!
