Country music legend Dolly Parton has never been afraid to speak her mind.
And she makes no bones about her strong Christian faith.
That’s why the Left is furious after Dolly Parton just defended Kid Rock in the way only the Queen of Country can.
Country music legend Dolly Parton recently said she is a “faith-based person” who believes in the redemptive power of forgiveness.
Cancel culture is terrible
The Queen of Country Music also said cancel culture is “terrible” while she was addressing some criticism she received for her recent collaboration with music legend and Trump supporter Kid Rock.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the 77-year-old Country Music and Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member said she could accept Kid Rock for who he is.
At issue is her duet with Kid Rock, which is featured on her new album, “Rockstar.”
Parton said she was happy to work with Kid “before the controversy that he had,” although she did not make it clear just what controversy she was referring to.
Kid Rock has never shied away from controversy.
“Of course I did that before the controversy that he had, but somebody was talking to me the other day, ‘How could you do this [song] with Kid?’” she said. “I said, ‘Hey, just because I love you don’t mean I don’t love Kid Rock. Just because I love Kid Rock don’t mean I don’t love you.’ I don’t condemn or criticize. I just accept and love.”
Parton then took on cancel culture, telling The Hollywood Reporter her deep Christian faith is the main reason why she doesn’t like cancel culture.
Of course her faith is nothing new.

Was it the Bud Light?
While Parton did not explain exactly what controversy of Kid Rock’s she was referring to, it might have been related to the Bud Light controversy.
Kid Rock attracted national attention from his critics back in April when he posted a video of himself shooting cases of Bud Light in a response to the once iconic beer brand’s hiring of transgender social media personality Dylan Mulvaney as its newest spokesperson.
Kid received scorn from the Left for taking the stand against Bud Light and, of course, for posting a video of him shooting a gun.
Parton said of cancel culture, “I think that’s terrible.”
“We all make mistakes. We don’t all get caught at it. But also when somebody makes a mistake, it depends on who they are. That’s what God is there for.”
“Now I happen to believe in God; I’m a faith-based person, so therefore I am able to see it like that,” she said. “A lot of people don’t, but even still, everybody deserves a second chance. You deserve to be innocent until you’re proven guilty. Even when you’re proven guilty, if God can forgive you, so can I. If God can forgive you, we all should forgive one another.”
Parton’s “Rockstar” also features collaborations with other non-Christian artists, many of whom are far more controversial than Kid Rock.
They include Steven Tyler, Sting, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Debbie Harry, Melissa Etheridge, Sheryl Crow, Elton John, Miley Cyrus, Lizzo, Stevie Nicks, and others.
