Unlike many cover songs, this collaboration is unique. Cyrus joins Parton on the track, adding her voice to the chorus, and giving it a fresh and exciting twist. It’s a delightful musical connection between generations, showcasing the versatility of both artists.
Parton’s Rock Star album is an exploration of classic rock songs, showcasing her wide-ranging musical talents. What’s interesting is that she hasn’t just reimagined these songs on her own. Instead, she’s enlisted the help of some of the original artists to make the songs even more special.
Sting joins her for the revamped Police hit, “Every Breath You Take,” and Debbie Harry, the iconic frontwoman of Blondie, adds her magic to “Heart of Glass.” Even the surviving members of The Beatles, Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr, make an appearance on “Let It Be.”
Parton doesn’t stop with the classics, though. She’s also included contemporary stars in her project. Lizzo collaborates with her on Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven.” Additionally, Chris Stapleton lends his voice to Bob Seger’s “Night Moves.”
The musical connection between both Parton and Cyrus goes beyond this latest collaboration. They previously performed “Wrecking Ball” together during Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party earlier this year, creating a memorable moment that left a lasting impression on fans.

Rock Star is all set to make its grand entrance on November 17, and fans are eagerly awaiting this musical journey. It’s clear that Parton is ready to rock and roll, and her collaboration with Cyrus on “Wrecking Ball” is just the tip of the iceberg. This album promises a fusion of old and new.
