Dolly Parton has something a little different planned for the near future in terms of album releases.
The country legend chats to ET Canada’s Morgan Hoffman about recently being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, with her being asked whether it’s sunk in that she’s a rock star now.
Parton replies, “No, but it’s soaking in a little more. Timing is everything.
“My husband had always told me I should do a rock album because he is a huge heavy metal rock and roller. So I thought, ‘Well, maybe I will someday,'” she adds.
“They wanted to induct me into the Hall of Fame and I didn’t think I deserved it. Then when they put me in anyway I thought, ‘Well, I’m going to not waste this time.’
“So I am actually doing a rock album of a lot of classic rock songs, and I’m going to actually have a lot of iconic singers and musicians join me on some of the songs,” Parton confirms of her upcoming release.
Pink and Brandi Carlile were among those there to welcome Parton into the Hall of Fame, with the pair performing a cover of her classic “Coat of Many Colors”.
