Elton John has worked with pop artists of his generation, such as Britney Spears, Dua Lipa and Ed Sheeran. He has also worked with Stevie Wonder, Ozzy Osbourne, Little Richard, Aretha Franklin and Kiki Dee in the iconic “Don’t Go Breaking My Heart.” Elton John has also worked with many artists from Dolly Parton’s list, including Stevie Nicks.

Everyone else on this list has had incredible success and collaborations, and people are eagerly awaiting to see what they will do on this album.
There are many songs that will be covered on the album that people are really excited to hear her sing, including, “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones and “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin. With Dolly Parton’s career originating from country music, it is really exciting to see how her music has changed and been shaped by the rock music and all the stars she will be working with.
