Dolly Parton Earns First No. 1 On Billboard’s Christian Airplay Chart

Dolly Parton‘s “There Was Jesus” has earned the country legend her first No. 1 on Billboard‘s Christian Airplay chart.

The duet, featuring Parton and Zach Williams, rose to No. 1 on the chart dated September 12 with 10.5 million airplay audience impressions in the week ending September 6, according to Nielsen Music/MRC Data. That is an increase of 2 percent from the previous week.

“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 told Billboard.

She added, “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 song, written by Williams along with Casey Beathard and Jonathan Smith, marks the Christian rock artist’s third Christian Airplay topper.
