Dolly Parton & Miley Cyrus Share New Version of ‘Wrecking Ball’

Dolly Parton and her goddaughter Miley Cyrus have released a new version of Cyrus’ 2013 hit ‘Wrecking Ball’. The track is set to feature on Parton’s highly anticipated forthcoming album Rockstar, which is due for release Friday, 17th November through Parton’s own label Butterfly Records.

“When I heard ‘Wrecking Ball’ I almost wept in my car,” Parton shared about the track. “When it started into the chorus it hit me like a wrecking ball! I thought how great can a song be and how great can Miley Cyrus be? I thought, I have to have that song on my rock album and I have to have Miley sing it with me! I love it and I hope you do!”
