Dolly Parton's forthcoming album "Rockstar" pushes the Tennessee songbird into unfamiliar sonic settings, but she never strays far from her Rocky Top roots.

So it shouldn't be a surprise that she's partnering with the University of Tennessee to release an orange-tinted special edition "Rockstar" CD celebrating the Volunteers.

  • Naturally, the Vols edition of "Rockstar" will include a live version of our state song "Rocky Top."
  • Parton is also partnering with UT on a line of merch that combines the two iconic Tennessee brands.

Meanwhile: The ever-ubiquitous Parton will be part of ESPN's Monday Night Football this season. Rock covers from her new album will be included in some of the game coverage.
