"Dolly Parton confirmed a wealth of special rock guests on her first ever rock album titled Rockstar that's due this fall. But when it came time to play some new music at the 58th Annual ACM Awards Thursday night (May 11), Parton went solo to debut her new song "World on Fire."
Parton previously teased that "World on Fire" would be the lead single and she perfectly captured the spirit of the song with her performance onstage at the ACM Awards. The iconic vocalist sported a dress that spanned the entire stage with the various continents of the globe represented in the threads. The stage lighting shone a fiery yellow in illuminating certain areas of the dress as Parton, with a weathered vocal and a stomp-clap beat, shared her cautionary tale of a world caught up in lies that will continue to burn down around us without change."
