Country music legend Dolly Parton will perform one of her most personal and beloved songs, “Coat of Many Colors,” on the Tuesday, December 8th (8-9 PM) live telecast of NBC’s Emmy Award-winning musical competition series “The Voice.”
Also taking the stage will be country star and “Voice” season three Team Blake champion Cassadee Pope, who will perform her latest single, “I Am Invincible.”
Parton will mentor this season’s semi-finalists and share with them her infinite knowledge as a music industry trailblazer and icon.
She has garnered seven Grammy Awards, 10 Country Music Association Awards, five Academy of Country Music Awards, three American Music Awards and is one of only five female artists to win the Country Music Association’s Entertainer of the Year Award.
The remarkable upbringing of the iconic artist will be portrayed in NBC’s two-hour movie “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” on Thursday, December 10th at 9 PM. The film is set in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955. It is neither a biopic nor musical about Dolly’s whole life and performing career, but rather a family-oriented faith-based story about the incidents in her and her family’s life around the time she was 9 years old.

Cassadee Pope’s debut solo country album, “Frame by Frame,” debuted at #9 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Top Country Albums charts. Her debut single, “Wasting All These Tears,” sold more than a million copies… a feat that ranked her as one of the select few solo female artists to garner platinum certification with a first release.
