(Listen) Dolly Parton Performs “Let it Be” with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr from Her New Rock Album


Now that Dolly Parton is in the Rock Hall, she’s made a Rock album. Today she’s dropped her version of “Let it Be” with Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. The song was originally covered by Aretha Franklin, for whom Paul wrote it, in 1970. I think Aretha would approve of Dolly’s version.

PS Peter Frampton and Mick Fleetwood are also on the track.
