Dolly Parton Is Hosting Her First Ever Pet Gala

Forget the met gala…This one is for the dogs and cats!

As if we needed more reasons to love Dolly Parton, the Country queen has cordially invited us all to her first ever Pet Gala.  

That’s right, Dolly is rolling out the pink carpet for some fuzzy, four-legged friends that will be sporting the finest of fashion from Dolly’s Doggy Parton pet accessory and clothing collection to pieces inspired by some of Dolly’s most iconic looks.

The party starts February 21 at 9PM ET on CBS and Paramount+ and is expected to attract a superstar crowd including Iain Armitage, Drew Barrymore, Kristen Bell, Kristin Chenoweth, Margaret Cho, Neil Patrick Harris, Carson Kressley, Jim Nantz, and Jessica Simpson. Additionally, Jane Lynch will join Parton as co-host alongside runway correspondents Kelly Osbourne and Rachel Smith.

And of course, what’s a Dolly event without music? Adding to the festivities, Parton is set to perform a number of her classics including “9 to 5,” “I Will Always Love You,” “Puppy Love,” and “Jolene,” with assistance from Lainey Wilson, Carly Pearce, Chris Janson, and KC of the Sunshine Band.
