    Default Country Singer, Holly Dunn, Dies at 59 of Ovarian Cancer

    ‘Daddy’s Hands’ Singer Holly Dunn Dies at 59

    BY LORIE LIEBIG8 MINS


    Country singer Holly Dunn, known for her No. 1 singles “Are You Ever Gonna Love Me,” “You Really Had Me Going” and Top 10 hit “Daddy’s Hands,” has lost her battle with ovarian cancer. She was 59 years old.
    In 1986, Dunn released her self-titled debut album after years of working as a demo singer in Nashville. The sweet and nostalgic “Daddy’s Hands” was her first hit, climbing to No. 7 on the Billboard charts. 30 years later, the track still earns regular country airplay and became her signature hit.



    During her career, Dunn released ten albums and charted nineteen singles. In 2003, she made the decision to leave Nashville and retire from country music. Dunn resigned from her membership with the Grand Ole Opry and moved to New Mexico to focus on her love of creating Southwestern inspired art.

    In March, the Texas native revealed her diagnosis publicly and asked her fans for prayers.

    “Back in March of this year, I was diagnosed with a rare, very aggressive form of ovarian cancer,” Dunn explained in a recent interview with Hallels. “If you read the statistics, it is very bleak. Good thing I don’t believe in statistics! I had surgery and now I am having chemo treatments. I have since grown more tumors and it is going to be more of a battle than I anticipated, but I have a huge faith in the healing power of God and the healing power within me that originates from my God. 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.”

    According to WSMV-TV, funeral arrangements are currently pending. Wide Open Country sends our condolences to Dunn’s family, friends and fans.

    Terrible, ovarian cancer is such a horrible bitch.

    I have to say I hate that cheesy-ass song though.
