It is my true belief that if you’re lucky enough to have a good mother, that is the greatest gift that you will ever know,” said Dolly. “So many people responded to my Mother in the “Coat of Many Colors” movie not only because of the wonderful job that Jennifer Nettles did portraying her, but the love and attention that Mama gave to all of her children.”
This once-in-a-lifetime special takes place inside the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome a devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith and a raggedy patchwork coat…vividly described in the well-known song of the film’s title, that helped make Parton who she is today.
