Dolly Parton has certainly had her fair share of collaborative music endeavors, but her newest duet has taken the country world by surprise (in a good way, of course). Her newest undertaking involves Christian-country duo, For King and Country on their newest single, “God Only Knows”. The pairing made sense to Dolly, given her spiritual upbringing. She explains, “When I first heard ‘God Only Knows’ I thought it was one of the best songs I’d ever heard. I came from a very spiritual background, and I love anything to do with inspirational songs that lift people up. I feel that this is a good song for right now, and it’s so well written. I know that it touched me at a time when I needed to be lifted up.”
The new song premiered on all music streaming platforms and on CMT and Youtube in the form of a music video Friday morning, which also stars the country queen. As of Monday evening, the music video already had over 1,500,000 streams and found itself on YouTube’s trending feed on its first day.
When watching the video, if you’re like anyone at Edit, you just have to admire how gosh-darn amazing Dolly looks. How on Earth does she do it? Well for starters, she’s never seen a bad hair day in her life, thanks to her seemingly endless, collection of flawless wigs. While this may not be the most rational option for everyday use for us non-superstars, Dolly also steers away from blowouts at all costs, saving her hair from unforgivable damage. She’s also admittedly unafraid of needles, and injectables, and often credits how happy she looks to her beloved Botox.
This icon isn’t one to cut out her favorite snacks, either. Diets don’t tend to work well for her, as she claims “[her] weaknesses have always been food and men—in that order.” Paired with that statement, she’s had a life full of physical activity and allows for that to compensate for her love of food. Dolly credits her dieting failures to “potatoes and gravy of some sort”, and I think most of us can relate to that—at least in regards to carbs in general.
This inspiring woman never seems to do any wrong, and she never lets us down here at Edit. With that voluminous hair, perfect voice and her beaming smile, what’s not to love?
