Regardless of how you feel about country music, we can all agree that Dolly Parton is a national treasure, right? Her spunky charm transcends any musical genre, and her incredible humanitarian efforts are lauded by all. Folks, she’s just all-around wonderful.

What Dolly Parton concerts will there be in 2020?
After some extensive internet sleuthing, we are sorry to report that, unfortunately, Dolly Parton does not have a full tour lined up for 2020. But! Do not despair! Dolly always has something up her puffy, rhinestone-emblazoned sleeves. Even though we don’t have a list of Dolly Parton concerts for 2020, there are so many opportunities for you to enjoy Dolly’s particular brand of wonderful in the coming months!
Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings is coming to Netflix on Nov. 22.
Heartstrings is an eight-part series based on Dolly Parton’s music. That should be enough to get you immediately on board, but just in case you need more convincing, you can check out the recently released Heartstrings trailer. Each episode of the series features a unique cast (although, obviously, Dolly herself appears in every one of ‘em) and tells the story of one of Dolly’s songs.
The songs and stories featured in the series include “Two Doors Down,” “JJ Sneed,” and, of course, “Jolene.” They could never make a Dolly Parton Netflix series without heavily featuring “Jolene.” After watching the trailer, we are so ready to cozy up with Dolly this November.
If you live in Australia, you can catch Dolly Parton’s on-stage musical 9 to 5 starting in 2020.
9 to 5: The Musical is inspired by the movie, with a book written by the film’s screenwriter Patricia Resnick and the score by none other than Dolly Parton herself. It will be playing at the Sydney Lyric starting in April 2020.
And that’s not the only Dolly Parton musical to look forward to!
There’s also Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountain Christmas Carol. This musical — which features all-new songs from Dolly Parton — is set in in the 1930s. Ebenezer Scrooge has been reimagined as the irascible owner of a mining company town. On Christmas eve, he is visited by three ghosts who compel him to change his ways.
Dolly Parton will be performing at the 53rd Annual CMA Awards this year.
On Nov. 13, Dolly will be performing the opening song at the CMA Awards along with Carrie Underwood, Reba McEntire, and several other noted country singers.

It’s a performance you definitely won’t want to miss if you love Dolly and/or country music.
