Dolly Parton‘s collaboration with Judas Priest singer Rob Halford is finally available to listen to and it sounds awesome.

Several months ago, the frontman had shared that he was invited to work with the country legend and jumped at the opportunity.

In all the time that’s passed since Halford shared this news, it came as a wonderful confirmation when, upon the tracklist for Parton’s upcoming rock album being released, he was a confirmed guest on the record.

Per that tracklist, Halford, as well as Mötley Crüe‘s Nikki Sixx and John 5, collaborated with Parton for a song titled “Bygones.”

Well that song is officially out today and we have to say – it is one hell of a catchy rock and roll banger.

While Sixx and John 5 both provide solid performances, the real treat is hearing Parton and Halford sing side by side.

Whether they are singing together or singing separate verses, it’s incredible to hear Parton and Halford on the same track. “Bygones” is a super catchy tune, and based on it alone, we would love to hear more from Parton and Halford.

Below you can listen to this new Dolly Parton song featuring Rob Halford, Nikki Sixx, and John 5; Rockstar will be released on November 17th, and below the song you will find the entire tracklist associated with the record.
