Dolly Parton's long awaited, first-ever rock album Rockstar is now available! Rockstar (via Butterfly Records with distribution by Big Machine Label Group) is a 30-song collection which includes 9 original tracks and 21 iconic Rock anthems that pair Dolly with some of Rock n' Roll's most legendary names. The album is available as a 4 LP set, a 2 CD set (including Home Shopping Network, University of Tennessee and Dallas Cowboys CD exclusives), a double cassette (exclusive to TalkShopLive), digital download and available on all streaming services.
The album's focus track, “(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (feat. P!nk and Brandi Carlile)” takes the iconic Rolling Stones' song about worldly frustrations and commercialism from a male perspective and flips it on its head. It has a girl power thing going on!
“I can’t tell you how proud I am of the Rockstar album, and I can’t tell you how happy I am that it’s finally here to be released," Dolly shared. "I really had a wonderful time working with all these iconic artists on the record and all these iconic musicians.

I can hear the wind go whistling through the treetops
I hear raindrops falling softly to the ground
In the distance I can hear the roar of thunder
Seems there’s sounds of nature all around
Sounds of nature fill the air with music
How I love and cherish every sound
I often kneel in prayer to thank the Master
For the sounds of nature all around
