Nashville, TN (August 21, 2020)
GRAMMY Award-winning entertainment and international icon Dolly Parton has announced the release of “Mary, Did You Know?” from her upcoming Christmas album, A Holly Dolly Christmas, available everywhere on October 2. The classic holiday tune follows a series of Christian faith-based releases from Dolly including the #1 Platinum single and Grammy winning song, with four-time Grammy award-winning Christian music duo, for KING & COUNTRY, “God Only Knows,” which she performed with the duo at the 2019 CMA Awards. That same evening Dolly took the stage with Grammy award-winning Christian artist, Zach Williams, to perform their hit song, “There Was Jesus.” The track is Dolly’s first Top 10 single on the Hot Christian Songs Chart and Christian Airplay Chart, and is currently top 5 and climbing on the Billboard Hot Christian Songs Chart and Christian Airplay Chart this week.
“‘Mary, Did You Know?’ is one of the greatest, sweetest, well-written songs that I’ve ever had the chance to sing on. When I was recording it, I got very emotional. It is to me what Christmas is about and I’m proud to be able to sing it for my upcoming album.” — Dolly Parton
Releasing on Butterfly Records in partnership with 12Tone Music, A Holly Dolly Christmas is
Dolly’s first holiday album in 30 years and includes some of the timeless Christmas songs we all
know and love, as well as a few original tracks. Five of the 12 tracks were written solely by Dolly
