Dolly Parton thinks she and Jack White would make ‘beautiful music together’

Jack White live in Nashville, and he has always championed country music, so it makes sense that he has a fan in country singer Dolly Parton. She would even like to collaborate with the former White Stripes frontman. Speaking with U.K. publication The Guardian, Parton revealed that she would be really interested in working with White in some capacity.

“I had a chance to have dinner with Jack in (Los Angeles) not long ago and we talked about the possibility of someday down the road that we may get together to do something,” Parton said. “I haven’t had time to sit down and really focus with someone else on an album. But he would be someone wonderful. And I think we would make some beautiful music together.”

Back when the White Stripes were a band, Jack and Meg White covered Parton’s hit “Jolene.” Parton called the cover song “one of the greatest versions ever.” That’s a pretty nice compliment.

White worked with another country legend, Loretta Lynn, back in 2014 on her album “Van Lear Rose” He also worked with rockabilly mainstay Wanda Jackson on her 2011 release, “The Party Ain’t Over.” We’ll have to wait and see if White works with Parton next.
