Dolly Parton Goes Rock (Sorta)

Okay, so we already told you that Mr. Pearly Whites, Pat Boone, is doing a

heavy metal album. So now that your cat has stopped walking backwards and

speaking in tongues, get ready for round two: Dolly Parton covers Neil Young.

Parton, (insert joke here) who's own career was rejuvenated when Whitney

Houston turned her corny ballad "I Will Always Love You," into the least

escapable single other than the "Macarena," unleashes her Treasures

(insert second joke here) on the unsuspecting world on September 24. Hear

Parton sing Cat Stevens' "Peace Train" with Ladysmith Black Mambazo! Stand back

as Parton tip-toes her way through "Just When I Needed You Most," alongside

Union Station's Alison Krauss! Hold on to your britches as she gives the

Hallmark treatment to Neil Young's "After the Goldrush"! And you won't believe

the mess Dolly gets into when she wrastles with Katrina and the Waves' "Walking

on Sunshine"! Not satisfied? How about Blues Travelers' John Popper adding

vocals and harmonica to a cover of Merle Haggard's "Today I Started Loving You

Again"? And, in the leftover categories, you've got your John ("Welcome Back")

Sebastian and Los Lobos' David Hidalgo, who must have taken a wrong turn into

the wrong studio somewhere, lending a helping hand.
