World on Fire

Have you heard Dolly Parton’s new single “World on Fire?” Released on May 11th, the song was inspired by current events, and she wrote it in hopes of motivating people to make a change for the better:


“This is a song I felt very inspired to write. I think it speaks about everything and to everyone this day and time […] I hope it is something that will touch you and maybe touch enough people to want to make a change for the better.”


I didn’t know about the song until today, and while it doesn’t necessarily tickle my brain musically, what I love most about it is the lyrics, with an emphasis on the ending chorus: “Still got time to turn it all around.”


May we all hang onto those words and keep on, keepin’ on.
