Following its successful debut, Dolly Parton‘s first made-for-TV movie, Coat of Many Colors, will be released on DVD in early May.

The film, which is based on Parton’s childhood and named after a single that she released in 1971, first aired on NBC in December. Thirteen million viewers tuned in during the film’s debut, and the movie earned a 1.8 rating among adults 18-49. Coat of Many Colors was also the most-watched movie on broadcast TV since May of 2012 and earned NBC its best total-viewer results in the time period since 2009’s ER series finale, excluding sports and live musicals.

Parton was recently honored with a Movieguide Award for Most Inspiring TV Program of 2015 for the film.

“I really wanted to celebrate the people, my whole family, who made me who and what I am today,” Parton says in a press release. “I’m so blessed and thankful for a great cast, producers, director and for everyone who watched, and I’m extremely thankful to the Movieguide Awards for this honor.”

Jennifer Nettles and Ricky Schroder play Parton’s mother and father, respectively, while Alyvia Lind plays young Parton in Coat of Many Colors.

Coat of Many Colors is set for release on DVD on May 3; retail price will be $19.98. The DVD will include deleted scenes, other extras and even an alternate version of the movie.
