The country music icon's new rock-inspired album 'Rockstar' is out on Friday
Dolly Parton found a way to get a little “Satisfaction” on her new album when one track didn’t go as originally planned.
The country music star’s rendition of “Satisfaction” by The Rolling Stones is one of the few covers on her upcoming, new album Rockstar (out Nov. 17 via Butterfly Records and Big Machine Label Group) not to feature the original artist. In an interview with Billboard published on Wednesday, the Grammy winner, 77, opened up about her decision to organize the unexpected team-up between her, Brandi Carlile and Pink on the track, instead of Mick Jagger.
The Rock and Hall of Famer explained that she “wanted so badly to sing with Mick,” but the timing ultimately didn’t work out. “And then I thought, ‘Well, if you’re not going to sing that with me, I’m going to get some girl power going here,’” she told the outlet.
The “Jolene” singer said she originally approached the frontman, 80, and they went back and forth about what to do for the record. Parton said, “He wanted to do something different than ‘Satisfaction’ because he’d already done that, so we were trying to find the right song.”
“He was so involved in his own [upcoming] album, which I completely understand, until I ran out of time because [with] vinyl, now you have a six-month wait,” she said, referring to The Rolling Stones’ recent record Hackney Diamonds that came out in October.
“We had a deadline,” the superstar added — so Carlile, 42, and Pink, 44, lent their powerhouse vocals to the cover.
Parton was able to wrangle quite a few other A-list guests on her massive, 30-track project. She joined forces with Sting on “Every Breath You Take,” Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr on “Let It Be,” Debbie Harry on “Heart of Glass” and Elton John on “Don’t Let the Sun Go Down,” among many others.
In a video on Instagram, she said, “I remember the first time I heard ‘Wrecking Ball,’ it hit me the same way as it did the first time I heard ‘I Will Always Love You’ by Whitney Houston. I was driving, heard that one, and I almost wrecked. And when I heard ‘Wrecking Ball,’ I almost wrecked again. I thought when it started into that chorus, ‘It hit me like a wrecking ball,’ I thought, ‘Well, how great can a song be?'”
“I thought, I have to have that song on my rock album and I have to have Miley sing it with me!” she added in the caption. “I love it and I hope you do!”
Rockstar also sees the “9 to 5” artist releasing her own original, rock-inspired songs, including the lead single and political anthem “World on Fire.”

The release of the highly anticipated album kicks off on Wednesday with a special in-theater event, followed by select encore screenings on Thursday. ROCKSTAR: The Global First Listen Event allows fans to experience the album for the first time, while also enjoying never-before-seen backstage and live footage of the country-pop icon.
Last year, the singer-songwriter told PEOPLE that she was inspired to make a rock album after her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and because her husband Carl Thomas Dean is a lifelong fan of the genre.
"I'm gonna have to live up to it if I'm gonna be in the Hall of Fame," she said at the time, "So I'm gonna go ahead and do a rock 'n' roll album, and I'm gonna pull people from the rock 'n' roll field to sing with me on it.
She added, "I had often thought about doing a rock 'n' roll album for [my husband] with his favorite songs. And so when this all came about, I decided that I am gonna go ahead and do it. … It was just the perfect storm. OK, it's time."
