Flashback: Holly Dunn’s 1986 Smash “Daddy’s Hands”

Holly Dunn, born August 22, 1957, in San Antonio, burst onto the country scene in 1986 with the Top 10 smash “Daddy’s Hands,” a tribute to her father released the day after Holly’s birthday.

That song led to a number of high-profile honors, including the ACM New Female Vocalist Award in 1986 and the CMA Horizon Award the following year.

From there, Holly went on to score a pair of No. 1’s, “Are You Ever Gonna Love Me” and “You Really Had Me Going.”

A member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1989, she recently released the gospel album Full Circle.
