The award for "Best Contemporary Christian Music Performance/Song" went to Christian band for KING & COUNTRY (comprised of brothers Joel and Luke Smallbone) and country music superstar Dolly Parton for their collaboration on the remix of the hit song "God Only Knows."

As Pure Flix Insider previously reported, the reimagined version — which accompanied a music video featuring Parton — deeply inspired audiences when it debuted last year.

Watch the "God Only Knows" music video:

 

The Smallbones expressed gratitude to Parton, who was not in attendance, while accepting their award. 

"To dear Dolly Parton, who is an incredible human being, it's one of the great moments of our career to collaborate with her and her team," Joel Smallbone said, according to Taste of Country. "I talked to her manager's sons in Sunday school; they were kind enough to reach out to her and play her the song."

He continued, "But she said something on a call, she said, 'I love this song because it's reaching to the marginalized, to the depressed, to the suicidal, which is all of us at some point.'"
