If you thought Dolly Parton was done rocking, think again. The country icon and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer celebrated her 78th birthday on Friday (Jan. 19) by dropping a deluxe version of her debut rock album, Rockstar.


“It’s my Birthday so I’m going to give you a present!” Parton wrote on X. “I’m releasing four never released songs for my birthday, to go with the Rockstar album, and a few others that you may have heard before that were not on the album. I hope you enjoy them, and I hope you all have a happy birthday for me! LOL.”

The nine fresh tracks include a live version of her originals “Rockin’ It,” “Mama Never Said” and the golden oldie Sylvester Stallone-featuring “Stay Out of My Bedroom” from the 1984 Rhinestone soundtrack.

Other bonus tracks include her take on Pat Benatar’s “Hit Me With Your Best Shot,” Eddie Money’s “Two Tickets to Paradise,” a take on her classic “Jolene” with leather and lace Italian rockers Måneskin, as well as covers of Simon & Garfunkel’s “Bridge Over Troubled Water,” Billy Joel’s “The Entertainer” and the Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).”

Five of the bonus tracks appeared on previous digital and limited edition versions of the album that debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in late November and No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top Album Sales chart, marking her first leader on the 32-year-old tally.
