Plus, moves for Todd Dulaney, James Wilson and Elevation Worship.

For King & Country's "God Only Knows" received a new jolt on Aug. 30, when a remix arrived with Dolly Parton joining the sibling duo of Joel and Luke Smallbone.

In the week ending Sept. 5, "Knows" rocketed by 298% to 10,000 downloads sold and 98% to 4.3 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen Music. It rebounds 5-1 on Billboard's Christian Digital Song Sales chart (dated Sept. 14) for a second week at the summit and jumps 8-2 on Christian Streaming Songs, while adding a 22nd week at its No. 2 high on Hot Christian Songs (which is fueled by streaming, airplay and sales data).

The song, which topped Christian Airplay for 10 weeks starting April 13, also debuts at No. 94 on the Billboard Hot 100, marking For King & Country's first appearance on the all-genre tally. (Parton is not credited on any of the charts noted, as, even with her version boosting the song overall, airplay and streams for the original still accounted for the majority of its consumption in the tracking week.)

Todd Dulaney's "You're Doing It All Again" (featuring Nicole Harris) ascends 2-1 on Gospel Airplay. The lead single from Dulaney's To Africa With Love, which was recorded live in Capetown, South Africa, and debuted and peaked at No. 2 on Top Gospel Albums in March, is Dulaney's third Gospel Airplay No. 1 and Harris' first.

James Wilson's first LP, Songs for the Church, enters Top Gospel Albums at No. 1, with 2,000 equivalent album units. Wilson recorded the set at Living Hope Church in Lexington Park, Md.

On Top Christian Albums, Elevation Worship's EP At Midnight arrives at No. 2 (7,000 units). The act, which represents Elevation Church in Charlotte, N.C., adds its ninth top 10.
