Dolly Parton wants to record a dance album, the singer revealed at a press conference last week.
The 68-year-old singer, who has more than 40 Top Ten country albums under her belt, has been floating around the idea of a dance album for a few years. But she brought the idea back into the headlines when she discussed a dance track called “Just a Wee Bit Gay” at a press conference promoting her new album, Blue Smoke.
"I would like to do a dance record," the music legend said at the press conference, according to The Guardian. "I have a song called ‘Just a Wee Bit Gay.’ It's a great little dance tune — it's funny and it's got a lot of comic in it. I do write a lot of songs along those lines with people that are different and are just themselves."
This wouldn’t be Parton’s first foray into the dance world. She scored a hit with her remake of “Peace Train” in 1996.
