Dolly Parton sings The Beatles’ song “Let It Be” with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr — listen to it here!

After over 50 years in music, Dolly Parton is now a real rock star. The cherished country legend is finally putting out her long-awaited rock album called “Rockstar,” and she’s teaming up with some of the biggest names in music history to do it.

Dolly just released the latest single from her album, a cover of The Beatles’ timeless song “Let it Be.” Many have covered this beloved tune before, but this one is extra special because it features both living Beatles, Sirs Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr!

Few artists can bring together arguably the greatest band ever, but Dolly did it. Although Paul and Ringo have worked together occasionally, having them both on board is still a major achievement.

And if having two Beatles wasn’t enough, the song also includes Peter Frampton on guitar and Mick Fleetwood on drums, making it a truly star-studded recording.

The spiritual, gospel-inspired song is a great match for the 77-year-old country icon, and Dolly gives it her all in her performance — have a listen:

The song has received praise from both critics and fans of Dolly Parton and The Beatles.

One YouTube comment reads, “I got goosebumps from the first few words… by halfway through I was in tears! Thank you, Dolly, Paul, Ringo, and everyone involved in this incredible recording!”

Another comment says, “Great version of an iconic song by the legends themselves! A lively and powerful rendition. Thanks to all!!”

And another emotional comment reads, “No words… just tears… amazing… so much gratitude to these incredible legends for bringing this inspiring piece to a new generation. ‘Let it Be’ is exactly what this world needs right now.”

“Let it Be,” first released in 1970, remains one of the Beatles’ most cherished and inspiring songs. Although credited to Lennon-McCartney, Paul McCartney wrote it after dreaming about his mother, Mary Patricia McCartney, who passed away when he was 14.

Recorded during the band’s famous yet turbulent “Get Back” sessions, it served as the Beatles’ final single before their breakup in 1970. The song also lent its name to their last album, adding a bittersweet connection to the band’s farewell.

Dolly Parton’s album, Rockstar, is set to be released on November 17. She first hinted at making a rock album last year when she turned down her nomination to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Dolly said she hadn’t “earned the right” to be inducted because she hadn’t made a rock & roll album yet.

“I hope the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will understand and consider me again if I ever deserve it,” she wrote. “This has inspired me to finally make a rock ‘n’ roll album, which I’ve always wanted to do!” She also mentioned that her husband is a “total rock ‘n’ roll fan.”

Rockstar will have some new songs written by Dolly, but mostly it features covers of classic rock songs, often with the original artists joining in.

The track list includes:

  • “Every Breath You Take” featuring Sting
  • “Baby, I Love Your Way” with Peter Frampton
  • “Heart of Glass” with Debbie Harry
  • “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me” with Elton John
  • “Free Bird” with Lynyrd Skynyrd

Besides “Let It Be,” Dolly has released two other singles from the album: an original song called “World on Fire” and a cover of Queen’s “We Are the Champions”/“We Will Rock You,” which also promotes the 2024 Paris Olympics.

There’s a new game in town and his name is Oliver Anthony

Step aside, TayIor Swift. There’s a new game in town and his name is Oliver Anthony. Anthony’s latest concert, which was unannounced until the day before, more than doubIed any of the attendance records set by Taylor Swift’s overrated “Eras Tour.

It was amazing, said concert promoter Joe Barron

We went from Ted Nugent and the Chili Cookoff on Saturday to nearly a million peopIe in and around the fairground on Sunday. Ted was honored to be part of it, albeit a little embarrassed.

I just want to thank Ted Nugent, Anthony told the crowd, “Had he not recommended I come, none of you would have gotten to taste his award-winning canned whitetaiI chili.” Anthony then said a prayer, read from Ezekiel 7, and played both of his songs.

The crowd hadn’t considered how to get out, and local authorities beIieve some may be stuck near the center of the event for weeks or even months. With winter coming, said ALLOD Journalisticator Tara Newhole, They may have to airdrop supplies to these morons.

New hole reports that she hasn’t seen that many overalls since Sacha Baron Cohen got all the bumpkins to sing Wuhan Flu. Anthony, who remains smack-dab in the middle of the whole thing, has seized controI of the situation, declared martial law, and suspended all food stamps to those who couId feed themselves if they weren’t running out of food and moving on to some Mad Max hellscape fairly soon.
