Dolly Parton has joined Rory Feek on an emotional tribute song to Joey Feek. “One Angel” honors Feek’s late wife, who died in 2016 of cervical cancer.
“As soon as I heard Rory was working on this album, I asked if I could contribute somehow. Rory truly is a gentle man. God bless you, Rory,” Parton says in a statement.
Rory explained in a blog post that Dolly was a musical inspiration to Joey.
“Her very first performance at Cunningham Elementary School back home in Indiana was ‘Coat of Many Colors.’ She wanted to be Dolly … to be LIKE Dolly,” Feek wrote. “And so after high school, Joey packed her things in a horse trailer and moved to Nashville to make her mark in country music the way Dolly did.”
