Dolly Parton, a country music singer, is entering the rock music industry with her upcoming album, “Rockstar,” which will be available on November 17. Her duet with Steve Perry on the Journey classic “Open Arms” is one of the album’s best tracks. Dolly Parton revealed in a recent interview with Billboard the details of her personal past, which gives the song more emotional depth. She says that years ago, her late husband Carl Dean proposed that she work with the late Kenny Rogers on Journey’s song “Open Arms.” According to her own words, it was as follows: That song has always been one of my favorites, and Carl loves it too. “You ought to do ‘Open Arms’ with Kenny [Rogers,” he used to urge me.” Of course, I lost out on my opportunity with Kenny. Before I ever called Steve Perry to ask if he would join me in singing the song, I had already performed it. He performed an outstanding job.
The New Album “Rockstar” Involves Numerous Partnerships
Dolly Parton politely denied the nomination in a statement posted on her X account, but she was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2022. “I don’t feel that I have earned the right to be nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, despite the fact that I am incredibly honored and glad to be recognized for it. I must politely withdraw since I truly do not want to cause a vote to be divided because of me.
To support her inclusion, she also stated in the same statement that she planned to record a rock cover album. That album’s release is rapidly approaching. “Rockstar” has collaborations with musicians including Paul McCartney, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Sting, as well as versions of classic rock tunes. The original artists are featured on a number of tracks, such as “Heart of Glass” with Debbie Harry, “Every Breath You Take” with Sting, “Baby, I Love Your Way” with Peter Frampton, and “Heartbreaker” with Pat Benatar. There are also other creative partnerships, like “Night Moves” with Chris Stapleton, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” with Pink and Brandi Carlile, and “Stairway to Heaven” with Lizzo on flute.

When I first heard the song, I was astounded by how powerful and wonderful her voice was. I tried my hardest to stay up with that gal, but wow, she really is hot!
