Jewel has released "My Father's Daughter," a duet with Dolly Parton, which appears on the former's latest album Picking Up the Pieces.

"When you grow up as a girl on a homestead with an outhouse, you don't have many heroes in the public eye," Jewel tells Time magazine.

"Dolly and Loretta [Lynn] . . . had a similar lifestyle to me. I loved their audacity. They were women who were so outspoken, and they had no shame in being who they were. They were so ahead of their time, and I always thought it was quite heroic."

"So I asked [Dolly] to sing on the song, and I was pretty surprised she said yes. I'm tremendously honored," Jewel adds.

"We got in the studio, she started at 8AM and was 10 minutes early and well prepared and looked amazing and was sarcastic and witty and everything you would hope Dolly Parton would be."
