Dolly Parton adds Mötley Crüe’s Nikki Sixx to her forthcoming album
Dolly Parton has included Mötley Crüe bassist Nikki Sixx alongside other big names who will feature in her forthcoming rock album, Rock Star.
While the title of their track is yet to be revealed, the 64-year-old glam metal rocker confirmed the news that he’s collaborating with the Country legend.
Sixx tweeted this week: “Played bass on a song for Dolly Parton yesterday. Been back in the gym again to beat the jet-lag from the tour and enjoying family time.
“Had a great interview with Sweden Rock magazine and they might even feature some of my street photography.”
Parton’s Rock Star will feature versions of tracks by artists such as Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Prince, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Journey.
Big names such as Sir Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, John Fogerty and Steven Tyler are also joining the mix.

The Jolene singer had also suggested that she’d like to reunite former Led Zeppelin members Robert Plant and Jimmy Page for her version of Stairway to Heaven.
“I’m trying to see if Robert Plant might sing on it,” she said. “Maybe Jimmy Page might do the pick-up part on it.
“I’m looking forward to dragging in some of the great classic people, girls and boys, to sing on some of the songs. I’m not far enough along to discuss who and what, but I am going to do an album.”
