Dolly Parton Sings Faith-Based Songs At The 2019 CMA Awards


Last night, Dolly Parton not only co-hosted the 2019 CMA Awards but performed as well. She took a chance by performing some faith-based songs and it paid off. Dolly not only sounded incredible but inspired audiences everywhere.

First, she collaborated on the song “God Only Knows,” with the duo for King & Country. Next, she sang with Zach Williams for a rendition of “There Was Jesus.” Lastly, she performed a solo version of her newest dance hit “Faith.” The song is by Galantis and Mr. Probz as well.
