Dolly Parton’s highly anticipated Rockstar album finally drops November 17, but the country-turned-rockstar herself just announced a special “global first listen event” in cinemas worldwide on November 15. The event will bring Dolly fans together for a musical preview of one of the year’s biggest albums.

Two days before the album reaches the rest of the world, theater attendees will not only get to experience select tracks and music videos from Rockstar but also footage of an exclusive interview with Dolly as well as performances of a holiday song and her classic hit “9 to 5.” Learn more and get tickets on the movie’s official website.

In a statement, Dolly shared, “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. 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!”

According to the website, in keeping with Dolly’s long-standing commitment to giving back, a portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will benefit Music Will, the largest nonprofit music program in the US public school system.


Dolly Parton’s Rockstar Global First Listen Event follows the wildly successful theatrical release of Taylor Swift’s TAYLOR SWIFT | THE ERAS TOUR FILM and comes just before Beyoncé’s RENAISSANCE: A FILM BY BEYONCÉ.

Just last week, Dolly dropped her latest single from Rockstar (a cover of Miley Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball”) and her new fashion photo book, Behind the Seams: My Life in Rhinestones.
