Pandora announced on Friday (Nov. 20) that Dolly Parton will be hosting a virtual version of its Pandora LIVE just in time for the holiday season.

Airing Dec. 4 at 9 p.m. ET/6 p.m. PT from a studio in Nashville, the festive special will also feature appearances from Tasha Cobbs Leonard, Brett Eldredge and Carly Pearce.

Throughout the evening, each of the stars will perform a selection of beloved holiday songs, all accompanied by Parton's longtime backing band, as well sit down for interviews to revisit their favorite memories of the country icon and dish on their own unique holiday traditions. The live-streamed event will also include a special segment titled "Dear Dolly," which will see kids from across the U.S. drop in virtually to interview the singer about how she loves to spend the most wonderful time of the year.

Additionally, Parton will take center stage as she performs tracks from her brand-new Christmas album, A Holly Dolly Christmas, which she unveiled in October via 12-Tone Music Group and her own Butterfly Records imprint.

Featuring collaborations with goddaughter Miley Cyrus ("Christmas Is"), Michael Bublé ("Cuddle Up, Cozy Down Christmas"), Jimmy Fallon ("All I Want For Christmas Is You"), Billy Ray Cyrus ("Christmas Where We Are") and brother Randy Parton ("You Are My Christmas"), the icon's third holiday album -- and first since 1990's Home For Christmas -- bowed atop both Billboard's Top Holiday Albums and Top Country Albums charts, as well as No. 16 on the Billboard 200.
