Dolly Parton’s ‘Rockstar’ movie is coming to these three Knoxville theaters

Step aside Taylor Swift and Beyoncé. Dolly Parton is coming to theaters, too.

Fans can get a special first listen of Parton’s upcoming “Rockstar” at three Knoxville movie theaters.

Theaters everywhere will present “Rockstar: The Global First Listen Event,” on Nov 15. The cinematic screening features music videos for songs on the album, behind-the-scenes moments, rare performances of “9 to 5” and the holiday song “Circle of Love” and an exclusive interview with Parton.

“I am excited to know that my fans around the world will be able to come together and be the first to hear a sneak peek of my Rockstar album,” Parton said in a news release. “I am so proud of this music, and I am humbled by all the wonderful artists who joined me. I cannot wait for people to hear it!”

“Rockstar,” Parton’s first rock album, comes out Nov. 17 and features classic rock anthems like “Stairway to Heaven,” “Heartbreaker,” (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Let It Be” and “Purple Rain.”

In an interview with Knox News in September, Parton talked about switching to full-blown rock star mode for the album. “I learned a lot about myself, and I worked hard at it. I would hear all the stuff and I’d wonder if I could hit that note,” Parton told Knox News.

“I thought, well, I’m just going to go for it. If it turns out great, great. And if it don’t, I’ll say ‘Erase that right now!’” Parton said with a laugh. “But I squalled at it. I mean, I hit it. I got in there.”

Paul McCartney, Steven Tyler, Miley Cyrus, Lizzo, Sheryl Crow, Elton John and Stevie Nicks are a few of the many musicians who make appearances on the 30-track album.
