Dolly Parton reveals why Mick Jagger refused to record duet on her upcoming rock album

Country music star Dolly Parton has been teasing her upcoming rock album titled "Rockstar," which is scheduled for release in November. She recently shared that she had hoped Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger would make an appearance on the album, specifically on her cover of "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction." However, Jagger declined the invitation, expressing a desire to work on something new and different.

Despite not securing Jagger's collaboration, Parton managed to enlist several other notable artists for her rock album. Richie Sambora, former guitarist for Bon Jovi, joins her on the title track, while Sting lends his vocals to "Every Breath You Take," originally performed by The Police. Former Journey frontman Steve Perry duets with Parton on "Open Arms," and John Fogerty, former lead singer of Creedence Clearwater Revival, partners with her on "Long as I Can See the Light."

For the Rolling Stones hit "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," Parton enlisted the help of contemporary singers Pink and Brandi Carlile. Additionally, her goddaughter Miley Cyrus collaborates with her on a rendition of "Wrecking Ball," and Debbie Harry joins in on "Heart of Glass." Other guest singers featured on the album include Elton John, Melissa Etheridge, Pat Benatar, and Stevie Nicks.

One particularly noteworthy collaboration on the album is Parton's cover of "Let It Be" with the remaining two Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. This partnership adds a significant touch of musical history to the project.

Dolly Parton's venture into the rock genre with "Rockstar" demonstrates her versatility as an artist. Fans can look forward to the album's release on November 17th, eagerly anticipating the unique interpretations of iconic rock songs and the exciting collaborations it offers.
