The Rolling Stones could end up being Dolly Parton's backing band.
The newest member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is seriously considering making a rock album, and she'd like to have Mick and other classic rock acts be part of it.
She tells Billboard, "I’ve always wanted to do the song 'Satisfaction.' That’s one of my husband’s favorite songs. And I may have to drag Mick’s guys up there to help me sing it."
But, it's not only the Stones she's interested in. "I thought about writing a song called 'Rock of Ages,' where I get all the great old rock ‘n’ rollers, the people that I have always admired and respected.
"I didn’t follow rock music that much, but my husband is a rock ‘n’ roll freak. He loves all the groups and all the great stuff. I just liked certain records. I may do up a version of something like 'Free Bird' and do my own versions of some classic things that I think would make good rock ‘n’ roll songs."
Dolly is no stranger to doing her "own version" of a classic rock song. In 2002 she recorded a bluegrass version of Led Zeppelin's "Stairway to Heaven" for her Halos & Horns album. Check it out here
She heard back from Jimmy Page and Robert Plant, who told her they approved.
