Audacy's Katie Neal welcomes Dolly Parton to our airwaves as this week’s co-host for the Superstar Power Hour on all your favorite Audacy Country stations nationwide.
One year after being inducted into the Rock ‘N Roll Hall of Fame, Dolly Parton has made good on her promise to release a Rock album. With some help from some A-list friends, Dolly’s 49th studio project, Rockstar, features 9 original songs and 21 classic Rock anthems with collaborators including Paul McCartney, Joan Jett, Melissa Etheridge, Lizzo, Pat Benatar and so many more.
“Just hearing them in my headphones when we were singing together was just amazing to me,” Dolly said of all the stars she got to work with for the project. “Just draggin’ some of those people out of retirement [was a good memory]. They thought, ‘Oh, I’m not doing that much anymore,’ and I said, ‘Well, you’re gonna do it now. I need you to do this.’”
Hear all about Dolly’s experience making the album as well as what her husband thinks about her Rock status, her Thanksgiving memories, and other fun stories by checking out the Superstar Power Hour with Katie & Company above.
