Remember that year when Dolly Parton saved the world? When she's not busy partially funding Moderna's coronavirus vaccine, which is thought to be nearly 95% effective against coronavirus, she's raising our spirits with a new Netflix Christmas movie or her new album of holiday music, A Holly Dolly Christmas.

But wait, there's still more! Now, we're pleased to learn that Dolly Parton will be headlining a virtual holiday special with Pandora Live on Friday, December 4, at 9 p.m. ET / 8 p.m. CT / 6 p.m. PT—RSVP for free here. Gospel singer Tasha Cobbs Leonard and country artists Brett Eldredge and Carly Pearce will also take part in the show.

As guests tune in from the comfort and safety of home, they can expect plenty of yuletide magic: "Taking place in a Nashville studio majestically decorated for the holidays, the evening will feature each artist performing classic holiday tunes backed by Dolly's longtime band members," a press release shares, also revealing that the concert will include interviews with the guest artists, during which "they will recall their favorite memories of Dolly and talk about their favorite holiday traditions." As a cute bonus, kids across the country will act as the show's interviewers in a "Dear Dolly" segment, in which the Queen of Country will share her favorite holiday traditions.

On social media, Parton revealed some more details about the event revealing that Cobbs Leonard, Eldredge, and Pearce will join her to sing "some seasonal favorites, including songs from A Holly Dolly Christmas."

Personally, we think we'll be dressing up in our finest Christmas pajamas for this virtual concert and doing some serious living room karaoke. Christmas music counts as cardio, after all, at least in our books.
