During Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountains Rise: A Benefit for the My People Fund telethon on Tuesday night, Chris Stapleton and wife Morgane treated viewers to a previously unreleased song called “Broken Halos.”
Watch the moving performance below at the 15:00 minute mark.
“I love his voice. Hopefully one day I’ll get to sing with him,” said Dolly Parton of Chris Stapleton’s artistry.
The lyrics to this tune fit perfectly with the occasion, using imagery such as ‘golden wings that used to fly’ and ‘broken halos that used to shine.’ Eastern Tennessee and its people have suffered immensely and this tune serves as a stirring reminder to keep hope alive in the face of adversity.All money raised by the telethon went straight to the Dollywood Foundation’s My People Fund, which was set up to provide $1,000 each month for six months to Sevier County families whose homes were impacted by the wildfires.
