Parton shared a video on Instagram celebrating the release of the team-up where she explains why she wanted to put her own spin on the song.


“I remember the first time I heard ‘Wrecking Ball,’ it hit me the same way as it did the first time I heard ‘I Will Always Love You’ by Whitney Houston,” Parton said in the clip, quoted by People. “I was driving, heard that one, and I almost wrecked. And when I heard ‘Wrecking Ball’, I almost wrecked again. I thought when it started into that chorus, ‘It hit me like a wrecking ball,’ I thought, ‘Well, how great can a song be?’”

Parton wrote in the caption that when she heard the track she “thought how great can a song be and how great can Miley Cyrus be?” “I thought, I have to have that song on my rock album and I have to have Miley sing it with me! I love it and I hope you do!” she wrote.

Cyrus also shared her gratitude for the collaboration on Instagram. “I’ve grown up covering my Aunt Dolly’s music & it’s an honour to hear her singing one of my songs,” she wrote in a caption alongside a photo of her singing on-stage dressed in a black and leopard print ensemble with her godmother.

She added: “I love you Aunt Dolly! I’m so happy to add another collaboration under our bedazzled (studded leather) belt! We’re ROCKSTARS now! You can hear so much sweetness and love on this record. Excited to share it with everyone. Forever your Doll Baby, Miley”.
