Kristin Chenoweth collaborates with Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire on upcoming new album 'For the Girls'

Kristin Chenoweth has teamed up with country music royalty on her upcoming new album ‘For the Girls’, with Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire lending their vocal talents to the record. The record is set for release on September 27.
For Chenoweth’s seventh studio album, she pays tribute to a number of female artists that have influenced her throughout her life, covering the likes of Barbra Streisand, Eva Cassidy, Patsy Clyne, Linda Ronstadt and Carole King among others.
Parton features on a Chenoweth original in I Will Always Love You, while McEntire sings on a cover of Peggy Lee’s I’m a Woman with Jennifer Hudson.
Also featuring on the album is pop sensation Ariana Grande, who features with Chenoweth on a cover of Lesley Gore’s You Don’t Own Me.
Speaking about the record, Chenoweth explained that she wanted to create something that not only be a homage to her heroes, but to also release something that females could really get stuck into.
“I really wanted to pay homage to all the women singers who have influenced me over the years,” Chenoweth said. “I wanted to make something that men could also enjoy, but this is by the girls and for the girls. These songs have all stood the test of time, and most of them are songs that I grew up listening to.
“It was a little intimidating, because people like Judy, Barbra and Dolly are the people who made me want to be a singer in the first place. I wanted to pay homage to these women and do them proud, but I also wanted to put my own stamp on it. And I think I was able to do that.”
‘For the Girls’ can be pre-ordered here.
