New Trailer for Dolly Parton’s New Movie, “Coat of Many Colors”

You might want to stock up on tissue before Dec. 10. That’s when NBC will air Dolly Parton’s semi-autobiographical movie Coat of Many Colors, and from the looks of the trailer, you might drop a tear or two when you watch it.

Jennifer Nettles is almost unrecognizable and absolutely riveting as she sheds the high-glam makeup of her recent appearances in Chicago on Broadway and affects a Blue Ridge Mountain accent to play the role of Dolly’s mother Avie. Co-star Alyvia Alyn Lind is the perfect little Dolly with the same sparkling energy of the country music legend and Ricky Schroder is the strong patriarch of the family as Robert Lee Parton.

The movie is based on the true story that inspired Dolly’s actual hit single “Coat of Many Colors,” but delves deeper into the country icon’s childhood and musical aspirations.

Don’t forget to watch on Dec. 10 at 7 p.m. CT on NBC.

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
