For King and Country’s “God Only Knows” has been a life-changing hit song. Since they original release of the song in 2018, the song spent several weeks at the top of the charts and has been a frequent request of Life 90.5 listeners. Recently, they released an incredible additional version, a collaboration with Echosmith that has also received much positive feedback. But I don’t think anyone was quite prepared for the next iteration of this song released at midnight this morning – a collaboration with none other than country music legend, Dolly Parton.
Extending beyond the music alone, this new video visually tells three different stories. The stories depicted by Joel, Luke, and Dolly represent just a few of the testimonies submitted to the band. Here are just a few examples of how the message of the song has reached people…
“I was sitting here contemplating suicide and this song popped up in my feed. This song has officially changed by life.” -Laney
“This song saved my life.” -Ayrshire
“I keep this song on constant repeat! It is true for so many of us as broken and misunderstood people!” -Ryan
What’s so interesting to me is that this song and message has not only caught the attention of contemporary Christian music listeners everywhere, but it’s also clearly won the hearts of well-known musicians from different genres. With this new collaboration, not only will the message have a fresh sound with an added iconic voice, but it will also expand the impact of the message to Dolly Parton fans who may not have heard the original.
More and more people will now be introduced to the love that God only knows.
