‘God Only Knows’


Country and Western singer-songwriter and one of the most famous names in the world of music Dolly Parton has revealed God has called her to make Christian music.

Parton, 73, has been nominated in the Christian genre at the 2020 Grammy Awards after her collaboration of Christian work with King & Country, releasing the single, ‘God Only Knows’.

She said: “I’ve done so many things and I see that I am in a position to help. People look at me like someone they’ve always known, like a mother or sister. If I say something good, people might listen.

“I’ve just felt like God was calling me into that. I’ve always felt like my music was more my ministry than a job. I just feel that this day and time, we need more people that are in a position to help to try to do something, if they can, to brighten the world a little bit.

“That’s what I’m hoping to do now.”

Along with her King & Country collaboration, Parton has also released two other faith-centric singles, including, ‘There was Jesus’ and ‘Faith’ with DJ duo Galantis. The latter, she says, ‘came to me out of the heavens’.

She added: “Galantis sent the song to see if I’d be interested, and I just loved it. It’s more of a dance song, but it’s a very spiritual message. It’s like God saying, ‘Have a little faith in me.’ So I was proud to be part of that whole thing.
