Dolly Parton's Upcoming Rock Album Will Feature Stevie Nicks and Cher
Dolly Parton's birthday isn't for a few more days (Jan. 19, to be exact) but the queen of country music is giving us quite the present: She's working on new music with Stevie Nicks and Cher.
Parton was on the Tues (Jan. 17) episode of The View to announce her new expanded line of Duncan Hines baking kits featuring her recipes for biscuits, brownies, and sweet cornbread.
But before the "9 to 5" singer could talk about her new sweet treats, host Joy Behar asked her about her recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and her rumored rock album. Parton confirmed she is working on a rock album, which will include covers of classics like "Stairway to Heaven" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," and it will feature a bevy of legendary singers.
Behar asked Parton if Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger will be featured on her cover of "Satisfaction," to which Parton replied: "I'm doin' my best to try to get him on, but I did his song anyway. I think Pink and Brandi Carlile are gonna be singing on that particular song with me."
"We've got great artists like Paul McCartney singing with me. Stevie Nicks, we just finished our song last night," Parton told The View hosts, before listing additional names like John Fogerty, Steve Perry, and Steven Tyler, who will be joining her on the collection.
"We got a lot of iconic singers that are going to be on with us. so I'm looking forward to it," she teased, before dropping her Cher surprise: "I'm even going to have Cher on. I've been getting a song for her. We've been trying to get the right thing together but that's going to be a big thrill."
A big thrill, indeed! Start dreaming of what a Dolly and Cher duet will sound like, and check out Parton's View interview in the clip below.
