Nine-time Grammy award nominee Natalie Grant released another single off her forthcoming album, Seasons.
On Friday, nine-time Grammy Award nominee Natalie Grant released 'Step by Step,' a reimagined duet with Dolly Parton.
"Remaking this song was dream enough," said Natalie. "I don't think I will ever get over this," said Natalie.
When Natalie's manager first reached out to Dolly Parton's manager to see if she'd be interested and available to do this song, the response was that Dolly was too busy.
"It just wasn't going to work out," said Natalie. " And then... Dolly Parton sent me a letter and asked if she could be on the song.
This is the first time that the pair have recorded a song together. The two met earlier this year when they shared a stage at Dollywood.
"In 1996, 'Step By Step' is a song I would blast on cassette in my beat up Volkswagen Golf as I drove to my job at Medicare," shares Grant in an interview with newrelease today. "The dream when I moved to Nashville was music, not Medicare, but I had to do what was necessary to keep going. This song was my reminder to keep putting one foot in front of the other. If you would've told me then that one day, I would not only be recording this song but doing it with an international icon, I never ever would've believed it. I still can't believe it."
Grant's new 10-track album, Seasons, will be released on October 6, 2023.
