CMA Awards 2019: Dolly Parton's inspiring performance was more beautiful than anything we could have imagined
When it was announced that legendary country music star Dolly Parton would be hosting the 2019 Country Music Association Awards in the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville on November 13, we were all obviously very excited. However, her performance at the event was beyond even our wildest dreams.
Hitting the stage with Christian pop duo 'For King & Country', Parton performed a beautiful rendition of 'God Only Knows'. It was one of those performances that instantly make you feel healed and complete and fans are losing their hearts over how beautiful Parton's performance was. Here are some of the reactions from fans on Twitter:
"@DollyParton is an angel from heaven #mesmerized #thatsall #CMAawards #CMAs #cmaawards2019" - @Flamenkers
"We do not deserve Dolly. I repeat, we don't deserve this legend! Bring the house down." - @Bookshooklook
"👏👏👏 @4kingandcountry @DollyParton I have been waiting for this collaboration all night long since I heard it first on @KLOVERadio." - @paula_30throad
As a legend of the country music industry, Parton's performance was one of the most anticipated sets at the CMAs this year and she really didn't disappoint. In fact, the only real criticism (if it can even be called that) that fans have raised on the performance is that it would have been even more amazing if Parton had performed the entire set solo.
"@DollyParton don’t need no help; little disappointed she ain’t doing this performance solo." - @MusicNutMatt
By the time Parton started her set, we'd already had a number of sizzling performances from the likes of Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Luke Combs, and Halsey and Lady Antebellum among others. While all those artists certainly did their best to entertain, Parton truly raised the bar with her inspiring performance and we'd just like to join this fan in saying:
"Thank you @DollyParton for giving us hope amidst hopelessness in our world." - @KSukEDUC
