New Dolly Parton Biopic Will Air This Sunday on A&E
Don your finest rhinestone pajamas.
Well, our wish is A&E's command: This Sunday, April 12th, at 8:00 p.m. EST the network will air Biography: Dolly and we can't wait to be immersed in the world of the Smoky Mountain Songbird. "[The documentary] explores the genius songwriter behind the rhinestones and the private individual who reveals almost everything in the lyrics of her songs," a description of the film on A&E's website reads. "Featuring exclusive interviews with Dolly herself, her musicians, co-writers and producers, the documentary explores why Dolly is considered one of the greatest and most important songwriters of modern times," the summary continues. Among those guests, Parton's fellow 9 to 5 co-stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin will also make cameos, along with Chris Stapleton, Linda Perry, and others. Watch the trailer below.
In addition to the Parton biopic, A&E will air three more biographical flicks about country greats. First, directly after Biography: Dolly at 10 p.m. on Sunday, the network will air Willie Nelson: American Outlaw, a tribute concert featuring Dave Matthews, Emmylou Harris, George Strait, and more. Then, on Monday, April 13th, tune in at 9 p.m. to watch Biography: Kenny Rogers. Following the Rogers special, A&E will premiere the tribute concert special, Merle Haggard: Salute to a Country Legend at 11 p.m. on what would have been his 80th birthday, featuring musical performances, previously unseen interviews, and more.
So go ahead, don your finest rhinestone pajamas Sunday night, plop down on your couch and prepare to be entertained. We guess we'll see you back there on Monday evening, too.
