Dolly Parton Brings Inspirational Christian Values Back to ‘Woke’ Country Music Awards

She promised an uplifting performance this week — and she delivered

The “woke” disease is spreading.

And it’s even ensnaring some of our greatest conservative institutions, like country music, in my view.

I am old enough to remember when country music was synonymous with conservatism.

But not anymore.

So many country artists today are “woke” and progressive.

Do you agree that protesting is acceptable, but rioting is not?

It’s a shame, because that risks pushing people further away from God and wholesome Christian values.

The Country Music Awards were once the last bastion of conservative values.

Today, we have artists accepting awards and pushing their progressive secular agenda during their speeches or in their music.

So it’s very nice when a country music star like Dolly Parton stands up for traditional moral values and vows to bring back a message of faith and light.

And that’s precisely what she did this week.

Dolly Parton promised an uplifting CMA Awards performance in Nashville, Tennessee — and she delivered.

Her faith-filled medley with For King and Country and Zach Williams was inspiring and amazing.

Parton performed “God Only Knows” with For King and Country and “There Was Jesus” with Zach Williams.

She also performed “Faith,” a dance music-inspired song she released earlier this year.

Parton said she wanted to bring a little “light” to a dark world.

“This world is just so dark and ugly and awful,” Parton said last month.

“I can’t believe how we just can’t have a little more light and a little more love. So I’m gonna try and make it my business to do more songs that are more uplifting.”

“Not just all Christian-based songs,” she went on, “but songs that are just about better things, and have a little more light.”

We love it — and you will, too!
