Dolly Parton Remembers Her Brother, Randy, As He Loses His Battle With Cancer

Sad news to report as Dolly Parton shares that her brother Randy has died.

She posted the following message to social media…

“My brother Randy has lost his battle with cancer. The family and I are grieving his loss but we know he is in a better place than we are at this time. We are a family of faith and we believe that he is safe with God and that he is joined by members of the family that have gone on before and have welcomed him with joy and open arms.
Randy was a great singer, writer, and entertainer. He sang, played guitar and bass in my band for many years. He headed his own show at Dollywood since it opened in 1986. He’s had several chart records of his own, but his duet with me on “Old Flames Can’t Hold A Candle To You” will always be a highlight in my own career.
‘You Are My Christmas,’ our duet on my latest Christmas album, joined with his daughter Heidi, will always be a favorite. It was his last musical recording and he shined on it just like he’s shining in heaven now.
He is survived by his wife Deb, his daughter Heidi, son Sabyn, grandsons Huston and Trent.
We will always love him and he will always be in our hearts”
Those wishing to pay tribute to Randy can make a donation to the Imagination Library in honor of his dad, Robert Lee Parton.

ERIC CHURCH is on the cover of “Billboard” getting his second shot in the arm, and he’s thanking heaven above for it. Quote, “I view [the vaccine] as a God sent miracle.  It’s clear to me that the only way to get back to normal is the vaccinations.  You’ve got to get needles in arms.” That doesn’t mean he thinks…
