Dolly Parton Scores Second No. 1 on Classic Rock Songs Chart with “Bygones”

Jun 16, 2023

Dolly Parton continues to accumulate musical milestones with her new single “Bygones” from her upcoming album Rockstar.

The song placed Parton in familiar territory, as the single reached the No. 1 spot on the Mediabase Classic Rock Songs chart. Parton also scored her second consecutive No. 1 self-penned rock song following previous chart-topper “World On Fire.” The song “Bygones” features a star-studded cast of musicians, including Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, and Marilyn Manson’s John 5.

“I am so excited to see the response ‘Bygones’ is receiving!” Parton said in a release. “To debut at #1 on the Rock charts is such a thrill for me, and it makes it even sweeter to share this with Rob, Nikki, and John 5. I also have to recognize my co-producer on the album and co-writer on this song, Kent Wells (Edgehill Writer/Producer), who helped me bring this song to life. I am a happy girl today!”
