Country music icon Dolly Parton has revealed that her upcoming “rock album” will features covers of the Rolling Stones, Prince, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin and more.
Parton plans to release the “rock album” in honor of her induction this year into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
Dolly revealed details about the album during an appearance on “The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon” last week
When Fallon congratulated Parton for being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, she responded, “I’m a rock star now! That’s what they say. That was such an honor. You know, I’m making an album too because I have to live up to all that hype.
Parton had initially asked for her nomination be given to a deserving rock artist but she later accepted the nomination and ultimately her induction.
She explained her initial reluctance to be inducted on the show, saying, “Honestly, I was sincere, I didn’t mean to start any controversy, but when they said they wanted to put me in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I always thought that was for people who spent their whole life working to be in rock ‘n’ roll. You don’t see Led Zeppelin in the Country Music Hall of Fame…although they could.”
“But anyway, I found out it was more than that. So, when I realized what it was, I said if they put me in anyway, I would certainly accept it gracefully,” she added. “Which I did, I even wrote a song about it to kinda tell the story about it.”
