Country Music Hall of Fame and Songwriters Hall of Fame members, Bill Anderson and Dolly Parton recently joined forces for the sentimental “Someday It’ll All Make Sense” music video.
The hopeful ballad was brought to life by director Trey Fanjoy, who has worked with artists such as Taylor Swift, Steven Tyler, Paul McCartney, Keith Urban, Reba McEntire, George Strait, Loretta Lynn, and Jack White.
“Working with my ol’ buddy Bill Anderson was the most meaningful fun I’ve had in years,” Parton shared in a statement. “I love the song we sang, I love how we sounded together on it and getting to do a video with him was just icing on the cake. I hope the fans enjoy it as much as we enjoyed being together on it.”
“Someday It’ll All Make Sense,” penned by Anderson, Bobby Tomberlin, and Ryan Larkins, is included on Anderson’s latest release, As Far As I Can See: The Best Of. To stream or download, click here.
Lyrics from the emotional track include:
Someday the picture will come into focus
And we’ll see it all plain and clear
When we come together in the place He has for us
Where the pain and the hurt disappear
Someday we’ll laugh at these roads that we’ve traveled
I am completely convinced
That hope never dies or goes out of fashion
Someday it’ll all make sense
“Hopefully, our song can help bring a bit of levity to a world that seems upside down and sideways so much of the time these days. If it can, music will have once again proven itself to be the optimal healer,” Anderson said.
Consisting of 16 songs, As Far As I Can See: The Best Of inspired the name of the artist’s current exhibition at the iconic Country Music Hall of Fame, Bill Anderson: As Far As I Can See. The name was derived from the opening line of “City Lights,” a track Anderson wrote that went on to become a hit track for Ray Price in 1958.
In addition to his classic songs such as “City Lights,” “Still,” Po’ Folks,” The Tip Of My Fingers,” and “Sometimes,” the record has a very special feature from the one and only Dolly Parton. Their newly recorded duet on “Someday It’ll All Make Sense” marks the first collaboration between the pair aside from an extremely rare demo they recorded of “If It Is All The Same To You” back in 1964. The ballad was ultimately released as a duet between Jan Howard and Anderson and acted as the title track on his 1969 record.
