Amazing things happen whenever Dolly Parton and her goddaughter Miley Cyrus join forces, and they’ve done it once again. The country superstar shared a powerful rendition of Cyrus’ smash hit “Wrecking Ball”, set to be featured on her upcoming cover album Rockstar.

“Wrecking Ball” was initially released in 2013, as a single from Cyrus’ seminal album Bangerz, and Parton revealed she almost wept when she heard it for the first time.

“When it started into the chorus it hit me like a wrecking ball! I 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,” wrote Parton on social media.

This isn’t the first time Parton and Cyrus sang “Wrecking Ball” by each other side. This amazing duo joined forces during Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party back in January, and delivered a powerful rendition of this song, which concluded with a tribute to Parton’s classic “I Will Always Love You”.

The “Wrecking Ball” cover will be featured on Parton’s upcoming album Rockstar, set to hit the shelves on November 17. This album will include nine original songs and 21 covers of rock classics, marking Parton’s first foray into this genre.
