Country superstar Dolly Parton has name-checked Adele on a track from her new album and hopes to duet with the London singer as soon as she can.

Speaking to Digital Spy, Parton said: "I love her, love her, love her! Did you notice I used her name in one of the songs on the album? 

"On Head Over High Heels, when I say 'I put on my tight dress, hair piled on my head, painting my lips red and my eyes like Adele!'"

Parton added that she is very keen on joining Adele for a duet. "I love her! I would love to do something with her. I just love her. I love how she looks, I love how she sings, I love how she is," she said.

"I would love to do something with her. Maybe write a song? Maybe do a duet. So pass that word along!"

Parton's new album Pure & Simple will be released by Dolly Records/Sony Music on August 19.
