Dolly Parton unwrapped an early Christmas gift this year, as her new album A Holly Dolly Christmas debuts on top of two charts.

Landing at Number One on both the Billboard Country and Holiday Album charts, the chart-topping feat is helping spread cheer in a year that fans need it more than ever, and Parton says she’ll join the festive celebration.

“I have many things to celebrate this Christmas, one being the success of my Holly Dolly Christmas album becoming Number One,” she says in a statement to press. “Thanks to all of my fans out there and Merry Christmas to all of you.” 

The set features of mix of yule-tide classics and new originals written by the country icon, plus a batch of all-star collaborations. Big names like Miley Cyrus, Jimmy Fallon, Willie Nelson, Billy Ray Cyrus, and Michael Buble appear alongside Dolly Parton — the classic-pop throwback duets on “Cuddle Up, Cozy Down Christmas” — and Parton’s project is also a family affair. Her younger brother, Randy, joins in the fun for “You Are My Christmas.”

Meanwhile, the Number One news brings even more reason to celebrate. It notches yet another milestone for the legendary entertainer, who is now one of only two artists with Top 10 album in seven different decades (joining Nelson).
