Jennifer Nettles, Ricky Schroeder, Gerald a McRaney to star in NBC's Dolly Parton Film

Dolly Parton, recently surprised Alyvia Lind, on the Today Show, when she revealed that the child actor would portray her in the new NBC movie, Coat of Many Colors.

More casting news
••Jennifer Nettles- Dolly's mother, Avie Lee Parton
••Ricky Shroeder- Dolly's father, Lee Parton
••Gerald McRaney- Dolly's Grandfather, Rev Jake Owens 

The Coat of Many Colors, will air on NBC, this Christmas season. I'm impressed with the actors chosen and hope NBC, will utilize these names to promote the film in addition to Dolly herself! Let's hope these famous faces will also appear on other networks besides those in the NBC family so that coverage is widespread! This film deserves to do well.

Dolly has hinted the future NBC movies based on her songs Jolene and The Seeker could be in the works. I'd personally love see The Seeker. I'd really like to see Dolly appear in these films! One film (based on Dolly's songs) that I've heard most all Dolly's fans hope for is These Old Bones! We'd live to see Doly come out of character and play the old lady from the song as she wanted to do in the music video that was never made.

Which Dolly song would you like to see Dolly and NBC choose next or in the future?

Trying to choose from 3,000 songs is overwhelming, but I am excited about this movie, and agree with you on the thespians selected. Did you see Alyvia's sister, Emily Alyn Lind, in "November Christmas"? She was awesome. I made a 4-1/2 minute video from the movie and posted it at
