Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson are making a Christmas movie in Dollywood


Visitors to Dollywood received a double dose of country music royalty on Monday.

Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson were hanging out and riding around the park together in a golf cart. The pair are said to have filmed parts of Parton’s upcoming holiday musical “Dolly Parton’s Mountain Magic Christmas.”

The film is set in Dollywood and will tell the behind-the-scenes story of a television special as Parton learns valuable lessons while visiting the Three Wise Men, according to NBC’s synopsis.

It is not yet known whether Nelson is one of these sages.

Parton revealed that the film will have other celebrity guests like Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus and Jimmy Fallon.

“We’ll be filming over the next few weeks, so you never know when Dolly or any of her friends will show up!” Dollywood public relations manager Wes Ramey told Knox News.

A premiere date for the film has not been announced.

Dolly has already had a busy month. Last week, she announced the latest attraction coming to Dollywood: Big Bear Mountain.

With 3,990 feet of track and reaching speeds of up to 48 mph, it will be the longest roller coaster in the park. It will also be the biggest investment in an attraction in Dollywood history, at a cost of $25 million.
