Country Singer Dolly Parton – who was controversially nominated and inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – is releasing her first Rock & Roll album, “Rockstar”.
Dolly said in a statement issued Monday, that releasing a rock album has always been a dream of hers and this honor “inspired” her to possibly record one “at some point in the future.”
“I’m so excited to finally present my first Rock and Roll album “Rockstar”, Dolly said.
“I am very honored and privileged to have worked with some of the greatest iconic singers and musicians of all time and to be able to sing all the iconic songs throughout the album was a joy beyond measure.
“I hope everybody enjoys the album as much as I’ve enjoyed putting it together!”
The press release said 77-year-old Dolly “joined forces with some of Rock music’s legendary artists along with today’s biggest stars” for the album.
On Tuesday, the American singer announced that her upcoming album, “Rockstar,” will be released later this year.
“I’m a rockstar now!” Dolly wrote on Instagram, adding, “My new album ‘Rockstar’ is coming November 17 and it’s available for pre-order.”
