Dolly Parton, the big star of country music, is now a special member of the Fab Four group. She got the two remaining Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, back together for a nice cover of their old song “Let It Be” from 1970. Dolly gives the song a cool twist with her raspy voice, while McCartney adds his smooth harmonies and Peter Frampton rocks out with a hot guitar solo.
Dolly said, “Is there anything cooler than singing ‘Let It Be’ with Paul McCartney, who wrote the song? And guess what? He played the piano too! And then it got even cooler when Ringo Starr started drumming, Peter Frampton played guitar, and Mick Fleetwood joined in with percussion. Seriously, can it get any better than that? Thanks, guys!”
This song is part of Dolly’s upcoming album called “Rockstar,” which comes out on November 17. The album has a mix of songs she’s reimagined and some new ones too. Big-name stars like Elton John, Pink, Miley Cyrus, Sting, and more are also featured on it.
Dolly chatted about the album, saying, “I had a blast singing with Stevie Nicks. We did a cute song she wrote called ‘What Has Rock ‘n Roll Ever Done for Me.’ And John Fogerty, he’s written so many great songs, but I really liked ‘Long As I Can See the Light.’ We sang that together, and our voices sounded great side by side. I felt really good, even without getting carried away like some rock ‘n’ roll folks do.”
Last year, Dolly Parton, who’s 77 years old, got into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Meanwhile, Ringo Starr, 83, is touring around the U.S. this summer, and Paul McCartney, 81, has concerts lined up in Australia and South America later this year. Music keeps on going, and these folks are still rocking the stage.
