Dolly hails Jesus after win

Dolly Parton, the evergreen Country Music singing star, has tweeted a ‘thank you Jesus’ message after winning a Grammy.

The 74-year-old said she was ‘very humbled’ to receive the honour for her duet with Christian rocker, Zach Williams, on the song There was Jesus.

The song received the prestigious music award two days ago (15 March 2021) in the best contemporary Christian music performance/song category.

‘Thank you Jesus, thank you @zachwilliamsmusic, and thank you to the GRAMMYs and all of our fans. I am very humbled but proud,’ Parton tweeted.

Awards and rewards

The latest accolade is Parton's 10th Grammy and 50th nomination – but the star, who also appeared in the blockbuster movie Nine to Five, also declared: ‘I don’t work for awards and rewards.’

Williams, who is 34 years younger than his singing partner, also celebrated the award with a tweet. He wrote: ‘Thank you to @DollyParton and everybody who was involved in making this song. All glory, praise, and honor to Him!’
