A star-studded all-female tribute to country legend Dolly Parton will be released later this year (03) - with a new recording by the big-busted star herself.

Among the guests to have contributed to JUST BECAUSE I'M A WOMAN are NORAH JONES, Shania Twain, Sinead O'connor, Shelby Lynne and Alison Krauss + UNION STATION.

Dolly, 57, has re-recorded the tribute's title track - a song she originally recorded for her 1968 album of the same name.

Country rock singer EMMYLOU HARRIS says, "This is perhaps her most enduring legacy as an artist and the one we celebrate here with this album. Dolly you done good."
