It's been a tough year for everyone, so why not kick off the holidays a little early this year?

Country music legend Dolly Parton announced this week she will be releasing a new Christmas album on Oct. 2. It will be her first holiday offering in three decades and will feature collaborations with her goddaughter Miley Cyrus, big band crooner Michael Bublé, late-night comedian Jimmy Fallon and entertainment icon Willie Nelson, among others.

The 74-year-old Parton told People she wanted the album, "A Holly Dolly Christmas," to be "cute and clever," noting the title was inspired by the famous Burl Ives classic, "A Holly Jolly Christmas."

"He used to be on all of my Christmas specials through the years," Parton told the magazine of Ives. "I think of him as 'Mr. Christmas.' I thought, 'Why don't I call it something cute and clever like that, or 'Deck the Halls with Boughs of Dolly'—something corny like that."
