Dolly Parton will once again be setting her sights on festive magic this holiday season. The singer has been announced as the star of Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas, an upcoming NBC musical film that will feature an array of special guests.

Willie Nelson and Jimmie Allen will also be repping country music as part of the cast list, as will Billy Ray Cyrus. Cyrus’ daughter — and Parton’s goddaughter — Miley Cyrus will also make an appearance in the film.

Nelson and Miley Cyrus each lent their voice to a track on A Holly Dolly Christmas, Parton’s 2020 Christmas album, and they’re not the only Parton collaborators to reprise their roles of bringing festive cheer to her new Christmas movie. Late-night talk show host Jimmy Fallon is also a guest star in Mountain Magic Christmas, after appearing on a version of “All I Want for Christmas is You” on Parton’s 2020 holiday record.

Christian artist Zach Williams is also appearing in the musical; he previously teamed up with Parton for a duet called “There Was Jesus.”

In addition to the musical acts appearing onscreen for Mountain Magic Christmas, Dolly is starring alongside actors Tom Everett Scott, Ana Gasteyer and Angel Parker, plus more actors to be announced at a later date.
