There won’t be a dry eye around the television when “Dolly Parton‘s Coat of Many Colors” airs December 10th on NBC. Parton and NBC released a three-minute preview of the upcoming TV-movie based on the Country Music Hall of Famer’s 1971 hit “Coat of Many Colors.”

My favorite song that I’ve ever written tells a true story from my childhood about a little coat that my mama made for me,” Parton said while introducing the clip. Parton’s mother initially sewed the the jacket as a blanket for her unborn baby, but she reworked the piece for her youngest daughter.

The upcoming primetime special, which showcases Jennifer Nettles in the role of Parton’s mother, Avie, was inspired by a series of events Parton endured when she was 9 years old growing up in East Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains.

The family-oriented, faith-based movie profiles the loss of Parton’s unborn sibling, the family struggles to keep it together while grieving and the bullying the 9-year-old endured when other children criticized the quilted coated.

As one of the executive producers, Parton herself was very hands on in the making of the film – especially when it came to casting her family members.

“She told me, ‘I loved your little eyes,” says Lind of auditioning in front of Parton.

Jennifer Nettles plays Parton’s mom, Avie Lee Parton, and Ricky Schroder plays her dad, Robert Lee Parton.

“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” is the first in a series of television movies developed by Parton that are expected to be released through 2016.

“Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” airs Dec. 10 at 8 p.m. CST / 9 p.m. ET on NBC.

Dolly Parton, country music legend, credits her family and music as the sources of her positive personality and inspiration that have shaped her humble beginnings to music superstardom in her cover story in the Nov/Dec issue of Live Happy.

In “The Joy of Dolly,” Parton discusses her various projects, all of which are rooted in family values staying true to her upbringing including, her autobiographical movie, Coat of Many Colors, which airs on NBC on December 10th in time for the holidays and of Imagination Library, a nonprofit organization that promotes early childhood literacy by giving age-appropriate books to children that was inspired by her father.

“My mama and daddy were the strongest people I ever met. God, family and hard work weren’t just ideas at our house, they were what made our house. I carry those values in my heart every single day, and I think it’s the best gift my folks ever gave me.”

“If there is something different in me, it’s that I make a choice each day to work hard to face challenges head-on, and keep reaching for those dreams. You’d be surprised how many I actually catch.”

“Everything there is to know about me is in my music. My ups, my downs, my good- and my not-so-good times are all there in the stories I write. Every song I sing reveals a little more about my heart and what guides me through this life.”
