Dolly Parton, José Feliciano Unveil New Collaboration
Anthem Records has released the first collaboration between multi-Grammy winning, global music artists Dolly Parton and José Feliciano, titled “Eagle When She Flies.”
The track was written by Parton and originally released on the album of the same name in 1991. The single was produced by Rick Jarrard and recorded remotely in Nashville. Feliciano, whose career spans 60+ years, has recorded many country songs and performed with artists like Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Glenn Campbell among others.
“‘Eagle When She Flies’ became very personal when my producer, Rick Jarrard, brought it to me for our Nashville recording session for the Behind This Guitar album,” states Feliciano. “After hearing it the very first time, I knew exactly what Dolly was saying, knowing certain women who are precisely what the song is about and so I needed to echo that, myself. I am blown away and so honored, really, that she offered to sing it with me. You know, Dolly, herself, is a magnificent Eagle”
