Dolly Parton Rockstar

I can’t remember the last album I bought.  It was probably a soundtrack,  Albums aren’t as big a thing as they used to be since folks download individual songs.  With that said, I’d like to direct you to Dolly Parton’s Rockstar album.

When Dolly was nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, she politely declined.  Dolly said, she was known as a country/western singer and had never sung rock and roll.  Dolly also said she would change that by doing a rock album.

And in true Dolly Parton style she did.  Take a look at the songs and artists she teamed with…
