@Jordan2  Was this a recent Dolly Parton documentary?

@Jordan2 I think this is what David Venable is hinting at on his facebook page that will be mentioned on his show tonight.

@rockygems123 Yes, if you look in this forum, I started a thread about the documentary.

I'm in a Christmas mode I guess, I just watched this ( also another Christmas movie Noelle, thread to come). Sure this was sweet and sappy, but I bet you will shed a tear or two once it's over.

I can't have been the only one who watched this?

I watched it on Saturday, unfortunately after I watched The Prom, so it paled badly after that.  A little old-fashioned, how it was taped on a soundstage. Have nothing negative to say about the music - just nothing great to say either.  There was something about the pastor I didn't like - maybe the cadence of his voice (is that the right word?), but liked his wife's voice and they sounded good together.

 

There was just something about the storyline I didn't really like.

 

I thought the assistant looked familiar and was surprised to see she was a past winner from So You Think You Can Dance back when I watched it.  She apparently had done quite well for herself after winning.
