Interesting news from Spinner.com:|
"Jack White's a busy man. Spinner reported only this week that the White Stripes mainman was already setting his sights on album number two with side project the Dead Weather, which features the Kills' Alison Mosshart. Now Spinner can exclusively report he's been in talks with another female singer-songwriter (he previously worked with Loretta Lynn) who is definitely not to be messed with.
Nashville legend Dolly Parton, promoting her CD and DVD 'Live From London,' told Spinner she'd been approached by White about the possibility of making a record together.
Asked by Spinner whether she had ever considered doing a project similar to Johnny Cash's 'American Recordings' -- a series of discs where he recorded tracks by the likes of Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails under the watchful eye of producer Rick Rubin -- Parton admitted there had been some interesting recent offers.
"Well, I have been approached [by] ... Jack White," she tells Spinner. "I've thought about doing it with [Jack]. He seems to be a fan but who knows. You never know what I might do. Every now and then I get offered those things, and I know if and when the time is right, I'm certainly not opposed to doing that. I usually have a set notion of where I'm headed with a certain project and what I want to get out of it. But Lord only knows what I might do when I get a chance to sit down and think about it."
