Get ready to rock with Dolly Parton's latest album “Rockstar”, set to drop on November 17. With a whopping 30 tracks and a star-studded guest list, this record promises to be an unforgettable sonic journey.
Known for her incredible versatility, Parton takes a leap into rock music, covering some of the genre's most emblematic songs. Notable renditions to look out for include “Stairway to Heaven”, “(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction”, and “Purple Rain”.
Excitement from Fans
Fan frenzy is already palpable on the social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter. Parton's excited audience has flooded her posts with messages of support and anticipation.
Not one to shy away from sharing her joy, Parton took to social media to express her pride and satisfaction with the new album.
The album's tracklist also boasts collaborations with a multitude of famed artists. Among them are John Fogerty, Chris Stapleton, Peter Frampton, Miley Cyrus, and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts. Listeners can also expect to hear Michael McDonald, Steve Perry, Sting, and Debbie Harry. The star power doesn't stop there with Simon Le Bon, Rob Halford, and even the two surviving Beatles – Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr – leaving their mark on the album.
Controversy & Acceptance
The album hasn't been without its share of controversy. The inclusion of “Either Or”, a collaboration with Kid Rock, sparked some debate following his recent Bud Light boycott due to their partnership with trans activist Dylan Mulvaney.
Unfazed by the controversy, Parton, a vocal supporter of the LGBTQ+ community, stood firm in her decision. She defended her choice to work with Kid Rock on “Rockstar”, underlining her commitment to promoting acceptance and love over judgement and criticism.
