Dolly Parton is all Christmas all the time right now. She just released her new album, A Holly Dolly Christmas, she’s got a new Christmas-themed Netflix special arriving soon, and now she’s announced a full-on network TV special.

Teaming up with CBS, Parton’s A Holly Dolly Christmas TV special will air on Sunday, December 6. It’ll feature the iconic country superstar for an “intimate, candlelit” performance, featuring holiday classics, hymns and even some of the new songs on her Christmas album — which features a star-studded cast of guests. Plus, she’ll share personal stories and reflections on faith for the season.

“I am so proud to be a part of the CBS family this holiday season with my new Christmas special,” Parton says in a statement.

“When Dolly Parton calls and tells you she wants to do a Christmas show, you don’t hesitate,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music & Live Events/Alternative & Reality for CBS. “A special with the multi-Grammy Award-winning, prolific song-writing, epic live performer of all time? She had us at hello. There’s only one Dolly Parton, and we are so excited to be bringing her to viewers this holiday season.”

A Holly Dolly Christmas will air on CBS and stream on CBS All Access starting Sunday Dec. 6 from 8:30-9:30 p.m. ET and 8:00-9:00 p.m. PT. Parton and Danny Nozell executive produce the holiday special.
