Taking place in a Nashville studio majestically decorated for the holidays, the evening will feature each artist performing classic holiday tunes backed by Dolly’s longtime band members.

Additionally, children around the country will join the special for a Dear Dolly segment as they act as the evening’s interviewers with Parton.
Dolly Parton — an 11-time Grammy Award-winner and member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1969 — is the first country artist to top the Billboard charts with 20 singles across seven consecutive decades (from the 1960s through 2020). For her Pandora LIVE special, she’ll be performing tracks from her latest release A Holly Dolly Christmas; which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Country Albums and Holiday Albums chart.
Tasha Cobbs Leonard is one of the strongest voices in gospel music right now, with achievements including 600 million lifetime streams on Pandora, a Grammy Award for Best Gospel/Contemporary Christian Music Performance, 13 Stellar Awards, 12 Dove Awards, and more.
Country music superstar Brett Eldredge’s fifth studio album Sunday Drive was the top-selling country album upon release, marking it his fifth Top 5 on the Top Country Albums chart. His fan-favourite Christmas record Glow debuted at No. 2 on the country charts and features the Billboard Adult Contemporary and Holiday Music chart-topping duet “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” with Meghan Trainor. The album has spawned an annual headlining holiday tour, and he recently joined Kelly Clarkson for an original duet with “Under The Mistletoe.” He’s earned 1.5 billion lifetime streams on Pandora and, thanks to Snapple, some of his top listeners will have the opportunity to participate in a virtual meet and greet with Brett prior to his performance.
Life comes full circle for Carly Pearce, who left her Kentucky home and high school at 16 to take a job at Dollywood and is now sharing the stage with her for Pandora LIVE. Carly had the most CMA Award nods for any new artist nominee this year for her No. 1 hit song “I Hope You’re Happy Now” and took home the trophy for Musical Event of the Year.
Event sponsors will help to create a truly unique virtual event experience that brings interactive fan activities and exclusive content together in an innovative and engaging way, including a curated gift guide and pre-show trivia with Sierra®, Meow Mix virtual photo booth, interactive chat hosted by Wendy’s, and exclusive artist merchandise for attendees on a first-come, first-served code redemption basis provided by CarMax. In addition, Pandora and flavour brand McCormick will be partnering for a charitable donation to Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library and encourage viewers to get involved and give the gift of reading this holiday season.
