Dolly Parton, who was recently inducted into The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, is now thinking about collaborating with The Rolling Stones. In a new interview with Billboard, Parton said she’d like to collab with a band who “knows a thing or two” about the subject of rock and roll.
“I’ve always wanted to do the song ‘Satisfaction,'” she said. “That’s one of my husband’s favorite songs. And I may have to drag Mick [Jagger]’s guys up there to help me sing it.”

She doesn’t even just want a song—she’s thinking about producing a full album with a bunch of different rock bands supporting her. “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,” she said. “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 [Lynyrd Skynyrd’s] “Free Bird” and do my own versions of some classic things that I think would make good rock ‘n’ roll songs.”
With all this being said, Parton is still unsure if she will be attending The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony that will be taking place in the fall. “If I do, I’m going to sing the hardest style rock ‘n’ roll song I could ever muster up just to show that I can do it,” she said. “I don’t know what I’ll do. … But I’ll do something to make it fun and to be forgiven for my mistake. To earn my title.”
