The country music legend will release her rock-inspired album 'Rockstar' on Nov. 17
Dolly Parton is coming to a theater near you!
On Wednesday, the country music icon, 77, announced that she’s kicking off the release of her upcoming all-rock album Rockstar with a one-of-a-kind, in-theater event, Dolly Parton ROCKSTAR: The Global First Listen Event.
The special screening will be held on Nov. 15 with select encore showings on Nov. 16 and offers fans the first-ever listen of the new, original songs and covers off the country legend’s upcoming album. The first-listen event, presented by Trafalgar Releasing, also features never-before-seen footage of the country legend, music videos and performances — including a previously unreleased performance of her holiday song “Circle of Love” and a rare rendition of her hit “9 to 5” — as well as an exclusive interview with the star.
The trailer for the theatrical event also dropped on Wednesday, briefly previewing a look at the behind-the-scenes footage shown in the film and audio of the upcoming album’s title track. Parton herself also shared the clip on Instagram.
The "Jolene" artist shared a statement about the fan event in a press release. “I am excited to know that my fans around the world will be able to come together and be the first to hear a sneak peek of my Rockstar album,” Parton said. “I am so proud of this music, and I am humbled by all the wonderful artists who joined me. I cannot wait for people to hear it!”
Dolly Parton ROCKSTAR: The Global First Listen Event arrives in cinemas just days before the Grammy winner releases Rockstar on Nov. 17 via Butterfly Records and Big Machine Label Group. The highly anticipated, 30-track record includes nine new songs and 21 covers of rock classics, and sees collaborations with fellow icons including Chris Stapleton, Elton John, John Fogerty, Miley Cyrus, Sheryl Crow, Stevie Nicks, Sting, and more.
Thus far, she’s released a handful of singles, including the lead single “World on Fire” and a rendition of “Let It Be” featuring surviving members of The Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, among other songs.
