Dionne Warwick + Dolly Parton Announce Collaboration

82-year-old Dionne Warwick is teaming up with 76-year-old Dolly Parton who sent her a track she wanted to record as a duet.

Appearing on the ‘Tamron Hall Show’ on Tuesday (1.04) and referring to the country music legend, Dionne said:

“And then she sent me another song, the one that we’re going to be doing as a duet.” “It’s a gospel song called ‘Peace Like a River.’ She wrote it. I am very excited about this, I really am.” “I’ve done so many duets over the years, but this one’s gonna be very special.”

The two songs share a unique connection in that Dionne’s cousin Whitney Houston recorded Dolly’s track ‘I Will Always Love You’ for 1992 movie ‘The Bodyguard’.

As part of her upcoming rock and roll album, the ‘9 to 5’ songstress previously pitched a huge collaboration, stating “I just recorded for my rock album and I did [Elton’s] song, ‘Don’t Let the Sun Go Down On Me.” “And I’ve sent out a message asking if he would sing with me on it and possibly play the piano.” “So if y’all get to see him, say ‘Dolly wants you to sing on her record!’ “

Poised for release in the latter end 2023, the upcoming album will feature a mix of classic rock covers and several new songs in that vein.

Dolly teased: “I’m working on that album and that will be coming out sometime next fall hopefully, in time for the Christmas season next year. And so I’m going to do a lot of classic songs that are rock songs and then a few that I’ve written.”
