“What an incredible moment I experienced this morning when my son, Jamey, called to tell me that Dolly Parton and I have a Grammy nomination for our recording of “Someday It’ll All Make Sense.” He heard the news on the radio while he was out running errands and was the first to share it with me,” shared Anderson. “There are so many people to thank, starting with Dolly, who was so gracious to lend her incredible talents to the record. To my co-writers on the song, Bobby Tomberlin and Ryan Larkins; to the record producer, Thomm Jutz; to Cindy Mabe and her staff at Universal Records, who believed from the beginning, as did Rusty Gaston and his staff at Sony Music Publishing….thank you, thank you, thank you. We haven’t won anything yet, but being a nominee makes me feel like a winner. My heart is overflowing with excitement and gratitude.”
Anderson and Parton are featured in the cinematic music video directed by Trey Fanjoy for the original version. “Someday It’ll All Make Sense” was co-written by Anderson with Bobby Tomberlin and Ryan Larkins and is on Anderson’s most recent release, As Far As I Can See: The Best Of, released June 10 by MCA Records/UMe.
