Parton, Warwick collaborate on new song
Tuesday, February 7, 2023
– Dolly Parton and Dionne Warwick are collaborating for the first time on their recording of a gospel duet, "Peace Like A River," out Feb. 24 on Warwick's Kind Music Group label.
Parton wrong the song, which was produced by Damon Elliott, Warwick's son and manager produced.
The singers filmed a video today in Nashville to accompany the musical release. The video was directed by Nick Pres and Damon Elliott.
"I was honored to get to sing with one of my idols, Dionne Warwick. I have loved her since we were younger, and getting to sing with her was one of the highlights of my career. I loved that she loved my song, and I loved singing it with her," Parton said.
"I so admire Dolly Parton's talent and work ethic," said Warwick. "I am thrilled to have this opportunity for us to work together."
"I knew from the moment that Dolly sent me ('Peace Like A River') that mom not only must sing it, but Dolly must sing it with her. The magic is in the dynamic of the duo, and let me say with all the chaos in this world we all need peace and cleansing," said Elliott.

A Dolly Parton Christmas album seems like a natural, as Parton oftentimes comes off like a child inside an adult's body. Parton was able to rope both famous Cyruses (Miley and Billy Ray) as well Jimmy Fallon, Willie Nelson and Michael Bublé to sing with her. Perhaps, best of all, Parton had a hand in writing half of these dozen songs.
Parton sounds great throughout, and into her 70s, her voice has lost none of its power. Sonically, Parton also isn't shy about infusing ...
