Dolly Parton On Her Plans To Work With Mick Jagger And The Rolling Stones
Dolly Parton recently joined Billboard for an interview and revealed that she plans to collaborate with Mick Jagger and the Rolling Stones for her next record.
Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominated 17 artists this year, with Duran Duran, A Tribe Called Quest, Eminem, Lionel Richie, Carly Simon, Beck, Kate Bush, and Judas Priest among the nominees. Dolly Parton was also one of the nominees for this year’s Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction, but she withdrew from the nomination since she felt she wasn’t a rock star.
Parton elaborated on her thoughts on withdrawing from the Rock Hall nomination in an Instagram post. In the post, the musician stated that she didn’t earn that spot, and she didn’t want the votes to be split. However, Parton also excited the music fans by revealing that this incident inspired her to make a rock and roll album in the future. Later, Parton accepted to be among the nominees due to ballots in favor of her induction.
In a new Billboard interview, Parton talked about her upcoming record and revealed her thoughts on Mick Jagger. She then stated that she hopes to have Jagger sing with her with the Stones playing behind her.
Moreover, Parton revealed that she plans to make an album for which she would collaborate with different rock bands and classic bands backing her on some songs. According to the musician, she will release a rock album in the future after this induction to Rock Hall, and it might be titled ‘Rock Star!’
Speaking to Billboard, Dolly Parton said about Mick Jagger the following:
“I loved him, and I love ‘Satisfaction.’ I’m hoping we’re both around long enough when I get to do this record that he’ll come to sing with me, and I may have to use The Rolling Stones to play behind me. I might do something like that — try to get some different rock bands, some of the classic bands, to back me on some of the songs I do and then do two or three or four originals.
I want to get in with some of the great rock groups and do some things, [but] I’ve been working so hard on so many things, and I’ve got to overcome this so-called controversy, which I never meant it to be that. So now I’m in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. So I’m going to have to do a rock album at some point. … Now I may have to call my album ‘Rock Star!'”
After Dolly Parton’s withdrawal from the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame nomination, some rock musicians showed her some support for this decision. Heart’s Ann Wilson described this act as a beautiful response while Dee Snider thanked her. Although Parton is now among the nominees again, she plans to make a rock album to deserve that spot.
