After landing a coveted spot on The Porter Wagoner Show, she saw her name in lights very quickly.

In 1975 and '76, the Country Music Association awarded her with Female Country Singer of the Year and, during this time, she was also working on moving into the pop market in order to further her career.

And the song “Here You Come Again" really helped her do that.

It won a Grammy Award and in the following years, she tucked a couple more of the prestigious accolades under her belt.

Probably one of her most famous songs, "9 to 5" catapulted her to global stardom.

Her iconic country glam style was recognized all over the world and her distinct million-dollar smile granted her with millions of fans.

And, as well as killing it as a musician, she has also dabbled in the world of film.

In the '80s, Dolly made appearances in films such as Nine to Five, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, and Steel Magnolias.

Long story short, Dolly is an icon.

Over the years, the singer has built her image around being America's sweetheart, and even now, at the age of seventy-four, she still has a strong and loyal fan base.

So, of course, the news of her own Christmas movie was met very warmly.

And it's now been released!

Described by Netflix as "Seasonal cheer comes to a screeching halt when a cold-hearted woman tries to sell her hometown's land. Can music, magic, and memories change her mind?"

Here are some more details surrounding the festive flick...

The musical, Christmas on the Square tells the tale of Regina Fuller - played by Christine Baranski - a "wealthy and unpleasant woman" who returns home to a small town, following her father’s death, to evict everyone right before Christmas, reports Variety.

A modern-day Scrooge, if you will.

Anyway, Regina comes across an angel - played by Dolly - and could be persuaded to have a change of heart, after an old romance resurfaces and she hears from and gets to know the locals.

The movie will feature fourteen original songs written and performed by Dolly...

Including Christmas on the Square, which will be appearing in her upcoming festive album "A Holly Dolly Christmas."

But now, a further detail has emerged about the filming process...

And it turns out that Dolly is a real-life hero.

9-year-old, Talia Hill has a lot to credit to the country singer...

Because, allegedly, Dolly saved her life.

Talia and her 2 brothers all appear in the film, as their mother Tonia Hill has spent decades in entertainment, working at Walt Disney World for twenty-six-years, Inside Edition reports.

And, this week, Talia spoke to Inside Edition about working on set with Dolly.

"When Dolly walked in she smelled like heaven," she said.

"She greeted everyone even if you were a trashcan person. It was such a great feeling."

Talia also revealed that Dolly saved her life.

Talia was returning to the movie set after going to get a hot chocolate when she felt Dolly pull her back from the road because a car was coming.

"She's like, "Well, I am an angel, you know; cause she plays an angel in the movie," Talia explained.

"I was in shock. She hugged me and shook me and said, 'I saved your life!'" she added.

The movie is now streaming on Netflix.
