Check out the first trailer for Dolly Parton’s new movie “Coat Of Many Colors” based on her classic song
Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors will air on December 10 on NBC and it looks like a real heartwarmer..
In introducing the first trailer out today, Dolly says: “My favorite song that I’ve ever written tells a true story from my childhood about a little coat that my mama made for me.’
Parton’s mother initially sewed the the jacket as a blanket for her unborn baby but she reworked the piece for her youngest daughter after losing the baby. The song and the movie are inspired by a series of events Parton endured when she was 9 years old growing up in East Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains.
Jennifer Nettles plays Parton’s mom, Avie Lee Parton, and Ricky Schroder plays her dad, Robert Lee Parton.
