Country and Christian music superstars have joined forces for a remix of “God Only Knows”.
When Dolly Parton first heard Grammy-winning duo for KING & COUNTRY’s “God Only Knows,” she said it “touched her so deep,” reports the Tennessean.
“It was like God spoke,” Parton says. “I thought so many people with all their problems … I just felt like this song touched everything people struggle with. There’s just such a peace and love and sweetness about it, and I really think this song says what we need to be hearing right now.”
“Hearing her sing that chorus and those words, it’s a little bit out-of-body as both artists and writers,” Joel Smallbone, of the well-known Christian band for KING & COUNTRY, says.
“It’s that rare moment when you’re like, ‘That’s always how it was meant to be.’ It’s pretty remarkable.”
for KING & COUNTRY, played three back-to-back concerts at Dollywood in light of this unexpected collaboration.
Parton had just told her manager that she wanted to focus on more faith-based projects when “God Only Knows” was presented to her. She believes the song was an unexpected gift.
