Hard Candy Xmas C/O Dolly Parton in the Age of COVID-19

Country music icon Dolly Parton’s song Hard Candy Christmas evokes a message of dealing with hardships during a Christmas season. This song resonates for us in this Christmas of 2020 (a pandemic year) because of COVID–19.

It also sends a message of hope that we all will get through this–as the lyrics say–I’ll be fine and dandy.

I first heard this song when it was played in that movie she had with the late Burt Reynolds—The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.

As 2020 will finally end soon for us, as long as there is hope in this life, it is worth fighting for.

  2. I think that song and Coat of Many Colors were her best musically.

    • Yes, indeed though in terms of upbeat songs that she did cover, I still like the “9 to 5” movie theme song and her duet with Kenny Rogers “Islands in the Stream”. Whatever, she has that voice!

  3. It may take a few years, but one day normality will return!

    • YES!!! Am hoping and praying for that. Happy New Year to you as well!
