Dolly Parton took to twitter today to remind her followers, and the world, of what we truly need right now. Sing it for all of us in 2020, Dolly. Sing it!
The peerless country legend has been an outspoken advocate for peace, love, and equality her entire life and career. Thankfully she took a moment to remind twitter of this. And when you’re Dolly Parton, it only takes a few words:
Posting a classic clip from her timeless cover of Love Will Keep Us Together, Dolly is here to remind us that it is love, not hate, that will bring us back together in 2020. As the world becomes more and more tumultuous, it is beyond refreshing to have icons like Dolly here to guide us to a better mindset.
Dolly Parton’s Classic Cover Stands The Test of Time
Recorded for her The Dolly Show album, Love Will Keep Us Together lyrics were penned by Neil Sedaka and Howard Greenfield. The catchy tune holds truer today than it has ever before. Original recorders of the song, Captain & Tennille, couldn’t have guessed at the longevity of their tune – but we’re all for it becoming an official anthem of 2020.
Regardless, if you’re in need of a pick-me-up, you can watch Dolly’s entire performance below:
While wildfires rage and more of our friends and family struggle with the tragedy of COVID-19, Dolly is here for us all. We know we’re not alone in wishing Dolly continues to spread her perfect brand of sunshine throughout 2020, and well into the future. Never stop being you, Dolly!
