Dolly Parton Live
Megan Mayer 2/18/2016
Dolly Parton has many unforgettable songs and performances, but her version of this hymn has got to be one of the best. With Glen accompanying her on the bagpipes, she begins to sing with four other men. They grow quiet to allow her voice to ring out alongside the bagpipe music.
Dolly's singing is already legendary, and it is nice to hear her with only one instrument and a few other voices to back her up. After the song she jokes about the bagpipes not behaving, causing everyone to laugh in amusement. Yet everyone performed so well, it was hard to tell. She also jokes around with Glen, talking about a talent of his, perhaps referring to the bagpipes.
Known mainly as a singer-songwriter of country music, Dolly is also an actress, author, businesswoman, and humanitarian. She is the most honored female country performer of all time, with dozens of awards and nominations. Listening to her sing "Amazing Grace" gives a great example of the joy her talent brings to everyone.
