The world –rightly – can’t get enough of Dolly Parton these days, and neither can Netflix.
The streaming giant on Monday released the trailer for the concert special “Dolly Parton: A MusiCares Tribute,” which will premiere April 7.
In 2019, the 75-year-old Parton was honored as MusiCares “Person of the Year” at the organization’s annual fundraising gala and tribute concert. Performers included Willie Nelson, Miley Cyrus, Kacey Musgraves, Shawn Mendes, Brandi Carlile, Katy Perry, Jennifer Nettles, Yolanda Adams, Leon Bridges, Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town.
Parton was the first country music artist to be honored by MusiCares, the charitable arm of the Recording Academy. Her special will also be the rare “Person of the Year” tribute to come to Netflix’s streaming service.
The 30-year-old event is filmed each year, and while several of those shows (Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney and Barbra Streisand, for example) have been released commercially, others have gone unseen by the public.
“Dolly Parton: A MusiCares Tribute” is the latest Parton-affiliated production to hit Netflix. Her musical series “Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings” arrived in 2019, followed by the documentary “Here I Am” and 2020’s musical drama “Christmas On the Square.” She also provided the soundtrack to 2018’s “Dumplin’.”
