Dolly Parton and Willie Nelson get the animated treatment in the new music video for “Pretty Paper”.
The song is featured on Parton’s new Christmas album, A Holly Dolly Christmas. Nelson originally penned “Pretty Paper” in 1963. It was inspired by a disabled man selling pencils and wrapping paper outside a department store.
“I figured since everybody probably wouldn’t get to celebrate Christmas as usual this year, I wanted to be creative instead of sitting around at the house this summer,” Parton said of A Holly Dolly Christmas, per Rolling Stone.
“So I put on my mask, gloves and practiced social distancing, as well as all of the wonderful musicians and singers,” she added. “And we proceeded to put together what I think is some of the best work that I’ve ever done.”
A Holly Dolly Christmas released on Oct. 2 and included collaboration with Miley Cyrus, Michael Buble and more. It is the mind-boggling 47th studio album from the legendary musician.
