Dolly Parton’s first rock album is finally available after being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame!

Despite initial reservations about accepting the nomination, the country music star was inducted into the Rock Hall last year. She didn’t think she deserved to be inducted alongside other rockers.

However, she eventually caved and accepted the induction wholeheartedly. However, even before she was nominated, Dolly had hinted at a rock project.

She has since expressed a desire to work with major rock acts such as Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones, among many others. She even credited her love of rock music to her husband, Carl Thomas Dean.

She said:

“My husband is a big hard rock ‘n’ roll fan, and for years I thought, ‘One of these days I’d like to do an album mainly just for him, just to kind of do it.,”

Months after being inducted, she revisited the idea and even revealed who she wants to collaborate with.

She stated in an interview with The View:

“If I’m gonna be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame I’m gonna have to do something to earn it.”

Mick Jagger, whom Dolly previously stated she wanted to bring on board for the project, is still being persuaded. She said:

“I’m doing my best to try to get him on, but I did his song anyway. I think P!nk and Brandi Carlile are going to be singing on that particular song with me.”

Aside from P!nk, Brandi Carlile, and Mick Jagger, Dolly also shocked everyone as she namedropped every rock artist who had already said yes to her huge undertaking.

Parton stated that her A-list rock album collaborators included Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Journey vocalist Steve Perry, and Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler.

Aside from those, Dolly is looking for the right track to invite her good friend Cher to appear on the album, stating that she is still looking for the right material to collaborate with the Goddess of Pop.

Dolly described the project as a “big thrill,” adding that it would include originals like “Rockin” as well as covers of Prince’s “Purple Rain,” Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Free Bird,” and Journey’s hit song “Open Arms.”
