Country music superstar Dolly Parton made history this week with her latest release. The country legend teamed up with Swedish electronic DJ/production duo Galantis and Dutch artist Mr. Probz to release “Faith,” which debuted at the No. 1 spot on Billboard's Dance/Electronic Digital Song Sales chart (dated Nov. 9). “Faith” was streamed 1.8 million times in the U.S. in its first week and sold 4,000 downloads according to Nielsen Music.
This feat is the latest in a growing list of accolades for Parton, who has celebrated 25 No. 1s on the Hot Country Songs Billboard chart, more than 50 Top 10 country songs, a record 44 Top 10 country albums as well as numerous Billboard Hot 100 no. 1 hits, including “9 to 5” and “Here You Come Again” – to name a few. Achieving chart-topping hits for over 50 years, Parton’s music continues to transcend generations and genres alike. Her collaborative spirit and musical innovation has allowed Parton to introduce contemporary Christian music to the mainstream charts with warm welcome and reverence.
This news comes at an exhilarating time for Parton as she prepares to co-host the CMA Awards on Wednesday, Nov. 13th and anticipates the release of the Netflix original series, Dolly Parton’s Heartstrings on Friday, Nov. 22nd.
