Sure, the crazy world we live in can get ‘ya down every once in awhile. Sure, we can wonder where morality went and why there always seems to be more bad news than good.

But then, this sort of news comes and makes us hopeful once again.

After the crazy popularity of “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors” made-for-TV movie back in December, it was announced on Feb. 9 that the critically acclaimed film would now be released on DVD on May 3.

The perfect Mother’s Day present, don’t you think?

Heck, the DVD will only cost $19.98.

What makes this news even better is the fact that the DVD not only will feature Dolly as the narrator, but will also include “an alternate version of the movie, deleted scenes and heartwarming extras,” according to a recent press release.

As you may recall, the movie “is set in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955. It is neither a biopic nor musical about Parton’s whole life and performing career, but rather a family-oriented faith-based story about the incidents in her and her family’s life around the time she was 9 years old.”
