Dolly Parton is one of the most well-known musicians in the world, and she recently praised Taylor Swift for her chart-topping performance on the Billboard Hot 100.
The “Jolene” songstress was asked to comment on the pop star’s recent record while speaking to Access Hollywood on the red carpet of this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
Parton appears to be a Swiftie, as the singer revealed that she has long admired the “Midnight Rain” singer.
“I love her… I think she’s spectacular. Great writer, and I love how she presents herself. She’s always been such a pro.”
The latest interview comes just a week after Taylor Swift reacted to her record-breaking chart placement on the Billboard Hot100, which saw all her songs from “Midnights” land in the top ten.
The pop star wrote on Twitter:
“10 out of 10 of the Hot 100??? On my 10th album??? I AM IN SHAMBLES.”
Furthermore, all songs from her most recent album, including the deluxe edition “3am Edition,” made the top 100.
Michael Jackson held the previous record with seven songs, The Beatles with five songs, and Drake, who is only one song shorter than Swift from his album “Certified Lover Boy.”
“Midnights” is a historic album, as she continues to break records, such as having the highest single-week vinyl album sales in modern history.
Her tenth studio album sold a whopping 575,000 vinyl LPs in its first week. Harry Styles held the record for selling 146,000 copies of his hit album “Harry’s House” in its first three days before she received the title.
Swift was the first to break the record after releasing her album “Red (Taylor’s Version)” before the former One Direction member.
Dolly Parton hinted at her upcoming rock album collaborators in the same interview.
The country legend said she would perform Elton John’s “Open Arms” and collaborate with Steve Perry. Parton also wanted to collaborate with Steve Tyler, but she is still undecided.
On the other hand, Swift announced her return to touring during an appearance on “Good Morning America.”
Messina Touring Group is promoting “The Eras” tour, which will cover all her discographies over the years. Swift also worked with Capitol One on the highly anticipated concerts.
“The tour is called the Eras tour and it’s a journey through all of the musical eras of my career.”
