Dolly Parton wants to reunite Led Zeppelin members for new rock album

Dolly Parton has accomplished many wonderful things throughout her long career. In addition to writing and singing innumerable iconic songs, she has donated over 100 million books to children in need, supported research that resulted to the COVID vaccine, and established her own popular amusement park. Now, as she returns to the studio for her upcoming record, Parton will attempt to accomplish the impossible: reuniting Led Zeppelin.

Parton says she wants to reunite Robert Plant and Jimmy Page to perform “Stairway to Heaven” with her on her new album, and if anyone can pull it off, it’s Dolly Parton.The “9 to 5” vocalist, best known for her distinctive country pop songs, is currently working on a rock and roll album. The genre-shifting endeavor was first announced when Dolly was nominated for membership into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Some questioned whether Parton, despite her talents, was appropriate for the hall celebrating rock music — and she agreed.

Parton denied the nomination because she did not want to take votes away from someone more deserving, and while she was “extremely flattered and grateful to be nominated,” she did not feel she had “earned that right.”But if anyone can alter their minds and bring the members of Led Zeppelin back in the studio, it’s Dolly Parton, who wants Plant and Page to appear on her new album, supporting her own cover of “Stairway to Heaven.”

“I’m trying to see if Robert Plant will sing on it.” “Maybe Jimmy Page will do the pick-up part,” Parton suggested. Page and Plant haven’t performed together since 2007. It’s unclear how serious Parton’s proposal is, how it would be implemented, or whether she intends to incorporate the band’s other live members as well. But it appears like Parton is totally committed to taking on “Stairway to Heaven,” a rock classic with which she already has some experience.

She covered the song on her album Halo and Horns, reimagining it as a country song with bluegrass guitar: But in her new album, she intends to return the song to its hard rock and roll roots, with a fresh version that is true to the original. “When I do the rock album, I’m going to actually re-record it – and do it more true to the regular record,” Parton said in an interview with Pollstar.

In addition to Page and Plant, Parton hopes to have more guest stars on her album: “I’m looking forward to bringing in some of the great classic people, girls and boys, to sing on some of the tunes. I’m not far enough along to say who or what, but I’m planning to make an album.” We’d love to hear a collaboration between Dolly Parton and Led Zeppelin; it sounds like many music fans’ fantasy come true. We’re hoping Dolly can get the band into the recording studio!
