At the age of 77, fabulous country queen DOLLY PARTON
is still working longer than from 9 to 5 per day.
In a recent interview, she said:“I would never retire. I’ll just hopefully drop
dead in the middle of a song on stage someday, hopefully one I’ve written.”
Her never-ending creativity and productivity is astonishing.
The living legend just launched her 49th (!) LP ROCKSTAR.
Parton about the album: “I’m so excited to finally present my first Rock and Roll album.
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!”
Rolling Stone Magazine: “Parton’s 49th album, Rockstar, is her first foray into rock & roll.
She got the idea to do a rock covers LP after being inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2022. She throws a Karaoke Party with a bonkers guest list. Dolly and her longtime bandleader and producer Kent Wells convened an astonishing collection of all-star duet partners. This has got to be the most stacked guest list in the history of guest lists, a karaoke night out where the party bus is stocked with a decent hunk of the most famous people ever in music.”
The longplayer contains no less than 30 songs and 20 covers, including collabs
with Miley Cyrus, Sheryl Crow, Lizzo, Elton John, Chris Stapleton, Stevie Nicks, Sting,
John Fogerty, and many more.
I don’t own a Dolly album, I didn’t follow her career but as so many million people
I know her hits, and I do love her formidable voice – the heroine again on this record –
and her charismatic I do what I want attitude.
Her Prince cover is my favorite. Sublime performance
