Country singer Dolly Parton has made headlines in recent days with the announcement of her new Christmas album, "A Holly Dolly Christmas," but it's her comments about the song "Mary, Did You Know?" that are truly worthy of attention.
Parton said the song's message — one that is centered on Jesus — offers truth that the entire world needs right now.
"I got very emotional recording 'Mary, Did You Know?'" she wrote in an Instagram post previewing the release of the song. "It’s the sweetest song about beautiful things being born out of unexpected situations and that’s a message we all need to hear now more than ever."
