Throughout her five-decade career, Dolly Parton has been committed to releasing songs that inspire and uplift listeners, from her signature “I Will Always Love You,” to her 1991 hit “Eagle When She Flies.”
Recently, she’s doubled down on that ethos with recent collaborations with CCM artists For King & Country and Zach Williams.
Her latest release “When Life Is Good Again,” aims to bring hope and assurance as the world struggles with the the medical, mental and economic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The released video for the song combines Parton’s performance with footage of the frontline workers fighting to keep people safe.
“Since our world was forever changed by the COVID virus, I have felt a deep respect and appreciation for all of our frontline responders,” Parton said. “This video is to pay respect to them and to remind all of us that this too shall pass. If we pull together as a community, we can rise above and look forward to more beautiful days on the horizon. I hope you love this song as much as I have loved bringing it to you.”
Parton has certainly done her part to help and inspire, not only with new music, but by donating $1 million to Nashville’s Vanderbilt University Medical Center to aid COVID-19 research. She also began a video series for children that finds Parton reading bedtime stories of classic children’s books, inspired by her Imagination Library. She also released six of her albums to streaming services for the first time.
