Dolly Parton has teamed up with Miranda Lambert to re-record her 1967 hit “Dumb Blonde”.
The much-loved track was the lead single off 72-year-old Parton’s debut album Hello, I’m Dolly, with the new duet being unveiled ahead of the release of the upcoming flick “Dumplin'”.
In “Dumplin'”, Jennifer Aniston plays Rosie Dickson, a former beauty pageant queen whose plus-size daughter, Willowdean (played by Danielle Macdonald), signs up for a beauty contest amid a struggle with body image and self-esteem.
Author Julie Murphy, who penned the original novel, has said that her story was inspired by some of Parton’s songs.
So, naturally Aniston, who serves as a producer on the movie, immediately called Parton to get her on board the project.
“I got a call sayin’ Jennifer Aniston had taken the book and was gonna make it into a movie,” Parton explained in a sit-down interview for a new CMT special. “I said, ‘I would love to do the music!’”
