Musical legends Dolly Parton and Dionne Warwick are having their first ever collaboration with their recording of a gospel duet entitled ‘Peace Like A River,” which Parton wrote and Damon Elliott, Waricks’s son/manager, produced for AND CUT… Productions. They filmed a video in Nashville to accompany the musical release.

“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,” says Parton.

Warrick is a six-time Grammy winner and the recipient of a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The “Dionne Warwick: Don’t Make Me Over” documentary is currently on HBO Max.

“I so admire Dolly Parton’s talent and work ethic,” commented Warwick. “I am thrilled to have this opportunity for us to work together.”

Parton has had 26 songs reach #1 on the Billboard country charts, a record for a female artist. Recently, Parton reached #1 on the Billboard Christian Airplay Chart for the first time for her duet with Grammy award-winning Zach Williams of “There Was Jesus.”

“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…” commented Elliott.

“It is such an honor to be able to work with these legends. Everything from the colors to the placements and detail of this work came into consideration to bring forth this peaceful clean visual,” added Bart Cooper, single cover artist.

Warick and Elliott’s Kind Music Group label will release the song and video February 24. The video was directed by Nick Pres and Elliott.
