HNAF (Hot New Album Fridays): Dolly Parton – ‘Rockstar’

Dolly Parton, rockstar, country music, rock music

Rating: 9/10 – Excellent Album

Well we knew this was coming but when you’re a legend like Dolly Parton teaming with other legends (Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, Elton John, Rob Halford, Steve Perry, etc) you are bound to have an awesome record that transcends musical genres. Dolly Parton’s Rockstar is an awesome record that surprises at every turn. Dolly Parton recalls of the day she met Carl Dean, her husband of 57 years. “I don’t remember what it was playing, but it was loud and it was rock’n’roll.”

His love of the genre is, in many ways, what led Parton to record a rock album of her own: Rockstar. “I dedicated it to him because he has always loved rock’n’roll,” she says. “The harder [and] louder, the better.” Parton delivers the goods here and exceeds our expectations on this truly magnificent rock album.
