One of the biggest stars in Country Music right now is HARDY.  Singer/Songwiter and one hell of a performer, this guy has had a massive few years.  And he also had a recent Rock hit with “Jack” which went #1 on the Mainstream Rock charts last year.

Well, he just announced his first full-length Rock album (details coming soon), and he released the first single off of it called “ROCKSTAR” this morning, and no, it’s not a Nickleback cover…

It IS pretty dang awesome, though, and it has one of the best music videos I’ve seen in a long time.

SO much YES right there.

Great song, great video, and great artist.

The trifecta, kiddos!

Can’t WAIT for the full album!

Dolly Parton “Sweet Dreams”

The iconic Dolly Parton is 78 today!

And to celebrate her birthday, she just released a Deluxe Version of her “Rockstar” albuym featuring some new reimagined tracks, like “Sweet Dreams” by The Eurythmics:

Ok, how cool was that? Haunting and creepy, and still has the rock edge and those stellar Dolly vocals. Honestly, I think that is one of my favorite verisons of that song.


She also released a version of “Bridge Over Troubled Water”:

Annnnnddd… a version of Eddie Money’s “Two Tickets to Paradise”!

Overall, she has nine new tracks on the Deluxe version of her “Rockstar” album, which is available now.

Happy Birthday, Dolly!


Dolly Parton SLAYS the Cowboy’s Halftime Show!

Is there anyone cooler than Dolly?

I knew her halftime show for the Cowboys-Commanders game would be good, because, well, it’s Dolly.

But I was NOT expecting the level of awesomeness she was about to unleash on us all.

She literally rocked a custom Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader costume, and did a great set, making everyone forget, once again, that she is 77.

Find the video at the link below- since the NFL is is being weird and won’t let me embed it:https://youtu.be/sFE6SNXoZuE?si=SCMBr15GGS1t1jGO

I particularly love the performance, not just because Dolly, but I love the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, and was addicted to their “Making the Team” show… which really needs to come back.  The whole thing is a YES from me!

Here’s more on the performance, and the official kickoff to “Rock the Red Kettle” for the Salvation Army:

The Salvation Army is one of the many causes I love to support, and Dolly herself just donated 1 MILLION dollars to it.

We don’t deserve Dolly.


Also, her new “Rockstar” album is fantastic, and you can get more info on that and everything Dolly at http://dollyparton.com

Dolly Parton feat. Miley Cyrus “Wrecking Ball”

As you probably know by now, Dolly Parton’s rock cover album “Rockstar” is coming on November 17th, and she’s been dropping tracks off it at random. This one I have been waiting for a while…

Dolly covering her GodDaughter’s smash hit “Wrecking Ball” with Miley on the track.

Yep. I’m so here for it.

Sorry if you were expecting Dolly naked on a Wrecking Ball. Maybe next year.

But seriously, I don’t think there is anything that Dolly can’t sing.

“Rockstar” drops November 17th, and you can check out the full tracklisting at http://dollyparton.com

Dolly Parton “We Are the Champions/We Will Rock You”

Dolly Parton just released another gem from her upcoming Rock album “Rockstar”, and of course, it’s pretty awesome.

I was kind of concerned about how this would sound, as I’m a HUGE Queen fan, but as per usual, Dolly put her magical spin on “We Are the Champions/We Will Rock You” and made it her own, while paying the proper tribute to the Queen anthem.

Dammit, I love me some Dolly.  I seriously feel like there isn’t anything she couldn’t sing and make her own.

Her album “Rockstar” , which features Rock covers, originals, and a star-studded guest list, comes out on November 17th.




Dolly Parton Feat. Ann Wilson “Magic Man” (Carl’s Version)

As you’re probably aware of by now, Dolly Parton is releasing a rock covers album called “Rockstar” this Fall, and it features a ton of collabs with rock legends.

She just released a killer version of “Magic Man” with Ann Wilson of Heart, with a twist, and it is absolutely fantastic.

Jeeepers. Dolly’s voice still sounds incredible. And, of course, so does Ann’s.

Oh, and Ann and Nancy Wilson of Heart are working together again, which makes my 80’s heart happy.  So stay tuned for more on that!

Dolly also released an original song with Rob Halford of Judas Priest called “Bygones” – again, I can’t get enough of these!

Also, Nikki Sixx and John 5 are on the track as well. HELL YES!!!

Dolly’s “Rockstar” album comes out November 17th, and features 21 covers, and 9 originals.

I. Can’t. Wait.
