“Happy Birthday to my new friend, Dolly! Had so much fun singing with you!” Nicks captioned the promising image.
Parton, who was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year, has enlisted several rock musicians to help create her upcoming album. She said during an appearance on The View (via (per Variety), “If I’m going to be in the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, I better do something to earn it. So I’m doing a rock ‘n’ roll album and I’m having a lot of the rock stars that I met that night be on the album with me.”
Parton confirmed that the upcoming album will feature contributions from Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty, Pink, and Brandi Carlile.
