Rockstar has become Dolly Parton's highest-ever charting album in America.

The music icon's 49th solo album, which she released on 17 November, debuted at No.3 on the Billboard 200 charts, making the country star's first rock release her highest-charting album to date.

"Wow, this is a big thrill!" Dolly, who has enjoyed a six-decade-long career so far, said in a statement. "I owe a thank you to the fans who have always been there for me. Their support made this achievement possible. I'd also like to thank my producer Kent Wells, all the wonderful artists, musicians, and engineers who brought their talents to this project."

The 30-track LP featured guest artists including Dolly's goddaughter Miley Cyrus, Elton John, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and Stevie Nicks, among others.

The album is Dolly's first to enter the Top 10 on the Billboard chart since her 2014 album Blue Smoke. The singer also appeared in the Top 10 after she released 1987's Trio with collaborators Linda Ronstadt and Emmylou Harris.

According to a press release, Rockstar also scored the 77-year-old her biggest debut week to date and biggest sales week in 30 years.

Rockstar arrived a year after the Jolene hitmaker was officially inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
