Dolly Parton debuted at No. 1 on the Mediabase Classic Rock Songs Chart this week with her song “Bygones,” scoring her second straight self-penned, rock chart-topper.
The track is her latest single from her upcoming anticipated Rockstar album, available Nov. 17 on Butterfly Records with distribution by Big Machine Label Group. “Bygones” features Rob Halford with special guests Nikki Sixx & John 5.
“I am so excited to see the response ‘Bygones’ is receiving! To debut at No. 1 on the Rock charts is such a thrill for me, and it makes it even sweeter to share this with Rob, Nikki, and John 5,” says Parton. “I also have to recognize my coproducer on the album and cowriter on this song, Kent Wells, who helped me bring this song to life. I am a happy girl today!”
“Bygones” follows the lead single from Rockstar, “World On Fire,” another Parton original, that became the album’s first No. 1 when it peaked atop Billboard’s Rock Digital Song Sales chart in May.
“It’s been a career-long goal to work with Dolly and when we heard she was nominated for the Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame, we called management and said, ‘hopefully, this is our time!’” says Big Machine Label Group Chairman Scott Borchetta. “We are so proud to deliver her first Rock Radio No. 1!”
Parton will head to London next week to conduct a European media blitz of appearances in support of Rockstar.
