It’s the holiday season and Dolly Parton is in the house at “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” to promote her soundtrack to the upcoming movie “Dumplin.'” So what do you do when you have Dolly as a guest? No doubt, Jimmy has the country legend join him for a Christmas medley.
That’s just what the talk show host had in mind when walked Dolly over to the performance stage. Backed by The Roots, Jimmy and Dolly went right into a medley of Christmas songs.
The pair kicked the medley off with “Winter Wonderland,” followed by “Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree”— complete with boughs of Dolly—”Jingle Bell Rock,” “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer,” “Sleigh Ride,” “We Need a Little Christmas.”
All the while the two were laughing and joking through the songs. From changing the words to “Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer” to messing up the words on “We Need a Little Christmas,” Dolly took control and ended the medley, adding that she has some moonshine for Jimmy.
“And we’ll give you some of the moonshine too,” Dolly said. “Or have we had too much?”
