Dolly Parton’s ‘Rockstar’ debuts at No. 1 on Top Album Sales Chart

Dolly Parton performs at The Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island.

Dolly Parton is making history with her new album ‘Rockstar’, earning the music legend her first No.1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart (which ranks the top-selling albums of the week based only on traditional album sales). Rockstar also debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200, making it Parton’s highest charting album ever, and her third top 10 on that list.

Rockstar is Parton’s first rock album, and the making of the LP was inspired by Parton’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2022. Parton has primarily released country music in her nearly 60-year career, and has ventured into such music genres as Americana/folk, bluegrass, children’s music, Christian, dance/electronic and pop.

Rockstar features 30 songs, including a mix of original songs and covers. It is also filled with dozens of famous collaborator, including Pat Benatar, Miley Cyrus, Melissa Etheridge, Joan Jett and The Blackhearts, Elton John, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Paul McCartney, Stevie Nicks, Chris Stapleton, Ringo Starr, Sting and Steven Tyler.
