Country music superstar Miranda Lambert is heartbroken after the devastating loss of one of country music’s finest. Lambert took to her Facebook page to write,
“So sad to hear about Holly Dunn passing. She was a big inspiration to me. By singing along with her cassette tape I learned to sing. Daddy’s Hands was the very first song I ever learned and sang in public. I was 9 years old. The 3rd grade talent show and my dad played guitar for me. She will always have a special place in my heart. Rest In Peace Holly.”
Dunn charted two no. 1 singles in her career, even collaborating music with her brother Chris Waters, who later became a prominent songwriter in the country music industry. Her hit song “Daddy’s Hands” melted the hearts of listeners, instilling a deep sense of love and compassion for the fathers that raised us and instilled the knowledge of wrong from right.
The singer passed away on November 15 at the age of 59 after a brief battle with ovarian cancer, one that Dunn had previously confessed to Hallels, “If you read the statistics, it is very bleak. Good thing I don’t believe in statistics!” She added, “I look towards a future when I am completely healed and cancer free. I ask for prayers of strength and courage as this journey continues.”
