"Coat of Many Colors," based on Dolly Parton's autobiographical song of the same name, debuted in 2015 to hit ratings -- and its sequel "Christmas of Many Colors" was no exception this year.

If you missed the follow-up, the DVD comes out later this month, and we have an exclusive sneak peek at some behind-the-scenes footage featuring star Alyvia Alyn Lind, who played the young Dolly Parton in both movies.

And wouldn't you know it, Lind's favorite scene was with the country superstar herself.

"She plays the Painted Lady," explains Lind of Parton's role in "Christmas. "The first time that she meets the Painted Lady, she's like, 'What is this beautiful creature?' so she sees her and she just has the biggest smile on her face... That's definitely my favorite scene in the whole movie because that scene just discovers when Dolly became Dolly."

In addition to Lind's interview, the DVD features Parton talking about the real-life counterparts to the people viewers saw brought to life on screen -- like her Uncle Bill, played by Cameron Jones.

"My Uncle Bill was very influential in my very early days. He spotted early on that I had a lot of the same stuff he did," says Parton. "...My Uncle Bill was a great guitar player, and he wrote songs. He saw early on that I had that same spunk, and that I was going to do this."

The DVD set includes three featurettes -- "A Story of Love, Sacrifice and Giving," "Tiny Tasseltop" and "1955: A Snapshot in Time" -- in addition to the deleted scenes. It is currently available on digital HD and drops on DVD Dec. 20.

Finally, if you just can't get enough Dolly Parton -- because really, who can? -- the singer is planning a Dec. 13 telethon for the citizens of Gatlinburg, Tenn., who were impacted by the eastern Tennessee wildfires on Nov. 28. The money raised will be combined with the money Parton's Dollywood Foundation is already donating to the families who lost their homes in the fires.
