Dolly Parton and For King and Country Win Grammy for ‘God Only Knows’

Dolly Parton and For King and Country

In collaboration with the Christian duo For King and Country, Dolly Parton won her ninth Grammy award over the weekend for the single “God Only Knows.”

Though Parton couldn’t attend the ceremony, Josh and Luke Smallbone of For King and Country praised the country music legend in their acceptance speech, according to CBN News.

“To dear Dolly Parton who is an incredible human being,” they said. “It’s one of the greatest moments of our career to collaborate with her and her team. She said, ‘I love this because it’s reaching to the marginalized, the depressed, the suicidal, which is all of us at some point.’”

The song won in the Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance and Song category. The song highlights struggles that only God knows with a refrain that includes the lines: “God only knows what you’ve been through//God only knows what they say about you//God only knows the real you//There’s a kind of love that God only knows.”

Parton was also nominated for her song “Girl in the Movies” with Linda Perry.
