The two figures, which are available for preorder now, feature two of Parton’s iconic looks from 2014, including her white pantsuit from Glastonbury Festival and her orange and silver outfit from her Knoxville performance on the Blue Smoke Tour.

Not a single detail of Parton was missed on the Funko figures, from her iconic blonde wig to her signature beauty mark, the collectibles are a true representation of the Country Music Hall of Famer.

Pop! Rocks: Dolly Parton features the “9 to 5” singer, playing the banjo, wearing an orange and silver fringe outfit, which she wore during her East Tennessee concert at Thompson-Boling Arena during her 2014 Blue Smoke Tour. The outfit was one of two she wore that evening, according to fan reports.

The figure is approximately four and a half inches tall.

The collectible item is sold in a box that is branded with Parton’s logo and the No. 268. A digital version of Parton’s Funko figurine also appears on the front of the box. 

The back of the box features a photo of Parton in the center with a quote at the bottom that reads, “If you don’t like the road you’re walking start paving another one.”

How To Purchase Dolly Parton’s Funko Pop! Rocks Figures

Dolly Parton’s Glastonbury Funko Pop!’s is available for pre-order exclusively through Funko.com. The Pop! Rocks Dolly Parton figure is available via Funko.com and Walmart.com.

The Grand Ole Opry member’s Pop! was first teased in the fall of 2022 via Funko’s Twitter. 

In September of 2022 during an #AskFunko Q&A on Twitter, one fan asked “Where is @DollyParton?” to which the toy company, best known for its licensed vinyl figurines and bobbleheads, replied “coming soon.”

Fans have been eagerly awaiting its release since Funko’s teaser on Twitter. In fact, ahead of the official announcement, fans shared their excitement for the collectible online after one fan got their hands on a Parton Pop! prior to its official release and share a photo online. 

The news of Parton’s Funko Pop! Rocks figure comes just one week after the Country music icon rang in the New Year co-hosting Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party alongside her Goddaughter Miley Cyrus. 

During Miley’s New Year’s Eve Party, Parton took a break from her co-hosting duties to perform several times throughout the show with Cyrus. Together, the pair of superstars performed duets of Joan Jett And The Blackhearts’ “I Love Rock ‘n Roll,” Patsy Cline’s “Walkin’ After Midnight” as well as Cyrus’ “Wrecking Ball,” Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” and “Jolene.”

Dolly Parton recently released her Greatest Hits album, Diamonds & Rhinestones: The Greatest Hits Collection.

Diamonds & Rhinestones: The Greatest Hits Collection features 23 of her most successful songs spanning from 1971-2020, including the iconic tracks “9 to 5,” “Jolene,” and “I Will Always Love You,” among others. This marks the first time Parton has combined original recordings released for a Greatest Hits project.

Inspired by her recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Parton is currently working on her first-ever rock project. 

During an interview with her longtime friend Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, Parton revealed that the title of the project will be Rock Star and will feature a collection of iconic rock covers. 

She also teased that the album will include several collaborations with Rock and Pop icons, including P!nk, Pat Benatar, Steve Perry, and more. 

Rock Star will feature original tunes as well as covers of classic rock hits such as Rolling Stones’ “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” Prince’s “Purple Rain,” Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven” Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “Free Bird,” and more.

During the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, Parton debuted the first tune from the project called “Rockin.”

“Well, I figured if I’m going to be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I’m going to have to earn it,” Parton said with an electric guitar in hand. “And you thought I couldn’t rock!”

Throughout the song, Parton shouts out several Rock & Roll icons and admits that while she’s a country girl at heart, she’s been rockin’ ever since the day she was born.

“I grew up lovin’ Elvis, and wild-man Jerry Lee / Chuck Berry, Little Richard / They all cast a spell on me / Carl Perkins and those blue suede shoes had no place on the farm… I was just a child, but I went hog-wild / For the rhythm and the beat,” Parton sings on the chorus. “I’ve been rockin’, rockin’, rockin’ since the day I was born / I’ll be rockin’ till the day I’m gone / I still got rock ‘n’ roll down in my country soul / And I’ll be rockin’ till the cows come home.”

In the midst of working on her forthcoming rock album, Parton also wrote a new book. The children’s book, Dolly Parton’s Billy The Kid Makes It Big, was inspired by her God-dog, Billy The Kid. The Book is set to release on April 25, 2023.
