Country music outfit King & Country have shared their exciting collaboration with the legendary Dolly Parton. The track is a reworking of their classic award-winning hit ‘God Only Knows’ and features on King & Country’s brand new studio album ‘Burn The Ships’
The inclusion of the iconic Country Music Hall of Famer’s vocals on the track takes the song to incredible heights, with shimmering acoustic guitars complementing the song’s message of hope. Dolly sounds as stunning as ever as she joins the multi-Grammy award-winning duo.
Speaking about hearing Dolly perform the track, King & Country’s Joel Smallbone said: “Hearing Dolly sing that chorus and those words was an out of body experience for us as writers and artists. As soon as we heard her vocals on the track, we immediately realized that this song was meant for her voice.”
Parton adds: “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.”
Along with appearing as a guest vocalist on the single, Dolly Parton also stars in the powerful new music video for the inspirational ‘God Only Knows’ as she and the Smallbone brothers struggle to find themselves before resigning to faith and belief.
The full-length clip was filmed in the home of country music; Nashville, produced by Patrick Tohill and directed by Benjamin Smallbone. You can watch the moving visual right here:
