Parton said the premise came from a Christmas show they presented at Dollywood, her theme park in Pigeon Forge, Tenn. Several years ago, a hologram of Dolly portrayed the Ghost of Christmas Past in an East Tennessee version of the Dickens classic. The singer said the idea to shift “A Christmas Carol” into a Smoky Mountain setting was Couch’s, the former entertainment director at Dollywood.

Some of Parton’s favorite songs from the musical include “Appalachian Snow Fall,” which she said has bluegrass harmonies and mountain sounds, and “Wish Book.”

“It’s about how we always dreamed about looking at all the stuff in the magazines that we wanted as kids,” she said. “I just kind of put myself in the position of these characters that I was writing about and thinking about how I would feel if I was in that position. And, I kind of have been in my childhood so it wasn’t a big stretch writing about poor people.”
