Since the news broke, Dolly fans far and wide have been very excited...And the further details surrounding the movie sound too good to be true.
Now, Dolly Parton has always been America's national treasure.

The country singer made a career from her "rags-to-rhinestones" story.

Her talent didn't go unnoticed.

And with songs like "Jolene" and "Love Is Like A Butterfly," she became an icon in the world of country singers.
via: Getty ImagesIn 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.

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

Long story short, Dolly is an icon.

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