Following an extremely busy year, Dolly is closing 2019 on another high note. After being a special guest host at “The 53rd Annual CMA Awards,” celebrating legendary women in Country Music, this living legend is making headlines again with two 2020 Grammy Awards nominations!

To have a nomination with Linda Perry for ‘Girl In The Movies,’ the song we wrote together for Dumplin’ means so much. And then to share another with my new friends Joel and Luke Smallbone from for KING & COUNTRY on our duet ‘God Only Knows’…well, I am one happy girl today!”
