Dolly Parton sent a "love note" to Beatles Sir Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr.
The '9 to 5' hitmaker was "very humbled" after the surviving members of the legendary rock'n'roll group agreed to re-record their 1970 classic 'Let It Be' for her rock record 'Rockstar' after she sang their praises in the special request.
She told NPR of approaching Paul, 81, and Ringo, 83: "So I just sent them a love note through their managers, and I just said what I was doing. And I said, I didn't want to put you on the spot, but I'd love to have you sing with me on my rock album. And if you're interested, call me at this number. And all the people I reached out to said, yes, we'd love to, and I was very honoured and very proud and very humbled by that."
Dolly has confessed to feeling like she was "hitting on" the artists she asked to feature on the star-studded album.
