Dolly is of course gearing up to release a rock album, Rock Star, next year, so it seems likely this one might be included on the tracklist too, along with other classics like “Free Bird,” “Satisfaction,” and “Purple Rain,” just to name a few.
“I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll” was written by Alan Merrill and Jake Hooker, and first recorded British rock band Arrows in 1975.
In 1981, Joan Jett & the Blackhearts released an extremely popular cover of it as the lead single from her album of the same name, and it peaked at #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, becoming her highest-charting hit ever.
Dolly looked incredible, too, and somehow, I have a feeling she’s gonna make 2023 her best year yet…
