Dolly Parton is officially a Rockstar and is sharing all the details surrounding her first-ever rock album.
The country music icon, who was recently inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, just announced the tracklist and star-studded guests who will be joining her on the highly anticipated project.
“I’m so excited to finally present my first Rock and Roll album Rockstar!” Parton said. ”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!”
Arriving on November 17 via Butterfly Records in partnership with Big Machine Label Group, Rockstar will feature 30 tracks, including nine Dolly originals and 21 covers of some of the most iconic rock hits of all time.
The project will feature collaborations with more than two dozen musical acts including Richie Sambora, Sting, Steve Perry, Ann Wilson, John Fogerty, Kid Rock, Steven Tyler, Warren Hayes, Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Chris Stapleton, Miley Cyrus, P!nk, Brandi Carlile, Debbie Harry, Elton John, Melissa Etheridge, Lizzo, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, Nikki Sixx, John 5, Linda Perry, Sheryl Crow, Emmy Lou Harris, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo, The Beatles’ Paul McCartney & Ringo Starr, Peter Frampton, Mick Fleetwood, Ronnie Van Zant, Gary Rossington, Artimus Pyle and The Artimus Pyle Band.

“We’ve got a lot of wonderful, great celebrities — a lot of the older rock artists — in addition to all these iconic, wonderful songs,” she told Good Morning America of the project. “But I wrote the one that I’m going to debut. It’s kinda fitting to the times. It’s called ‘World on Fire.’”
“World On Fire” will serve as the project’s lead single and Parton will deliver the world premiere of the track during the 2023 ACM Awards.
Parton will co-host the upcoming 58th Academy of Country Music Awards alongside Garth Brooks.
“I am thrilled to return to host the ACM Awards, this time with my friend Garth,” Parton shared. “While I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with him throughout the years, I can’t believe we’ve never had the chance to work together.”
Taking place on Thursday, May 11, “Country Music’s Party of the Year” will stream live exclusively on Prime Video from Ford Center at The Star in Frisco, Texas.
Parton was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. P!nk inducted Parton and paid tribute to the international superstar with a special performance alongside Brandi Carlile.
Dolly Parton joins an elite group of music icons, including Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins, Bill Monroe, and Brenda Lee, to earn a spot in both the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame. Willie Nelson will be added to this list when he is officially inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on November 3.
