Dolly Parton earns first Christian No. 1 for ‘There Was Jesus’

The country singer has reached the top spot of several genres

Dolly Parton just received her first No. 1 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay chart.

The country singer’s latest achievement is the result of her duet with Zach Williams for the song “There Was Jesus.”

The single was released in 2019 and the duo performed it live at the CMA Awards in November.

This week, “There Was Jesus” also reached the top position for Christian Adult Contemporary Songs.

"Having a No. 1 record at any time is a great thing, but having a No. 1 faith-based record during these crazy times is even greater," Parton, 74, told Billboard.

She continued: "I feel humbled and blessed to be part of this wonderful song with Zach Williams. It does my heart good to know that we have touched the lives of so many people."

The “9 to 5” singer holds several records in Billboard history.
