Dolly Parton has been a country music legend for over 50 years and shows no signs of stopping.

In a recent interview with Ken Bruce for the UK’s “Greatest Hits Radio,” Parton declared, “I would never retire.” She then joked that she would “just hopefully drop dead in the middle of a song on stage someday, hopefully, one I’ve written.”

In promoting her forthcoming album “Rockstar,” she stated that she has “always believed that if you wanted your dreams to come true, and you’re lucky enough to have that happen, then you’ve got to be responsible because you’ve got to keep the dream alive.”

She continued, laughing, “I’m not one to sit around doing nothing,” comparing the development of each dream she has to “a tree with good roots.”

Parton said “Rockstar” was her first rock attempt. She said her 2022 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction inspired her to make a rock record, despite initially declining the honor.

With Dolly releasing “Rockstar” on November 17th, do you think this is a natural progression for Dolly?
