Another album which is set to include a Rolling Stones track is Dolly Parton’s forthcoming record.

Arriving at some stage next year, the album is to also feature covers from artists such as Prince, Led Zeppelin, Elton John, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rolling Stones, along with Journey singer Steve Perry.

Parton also revealed that she reached out to Elton John about featuring on this record.

“And I’ve sent out a message asking if he would sing with me on it and possibly play the piano”, she said. “So if y’all get to see him, say Dolly wants you to sing on her record! So anyway, but I love him, just tell him to enjoy it because it was great fun for me”.
