Dolly Parton says song 'Head Over High Heels' is about Adele

Dolly Parton clearly has a fangirl-size crush on superstar Adele — and has even penned a new song as a token of her affection.

Dolly Parton performs in concert during her "Pure & Simple Tour" at The Mann Center for the Performing Arts on Wednesday, June 15, 2016, in Philadelphia. Adele performs on stage at the SSE Arena Belfast on February 29, 2016 in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

In "Head Over High Heels," featured on Parton's upcoming album, “Pure & Simple,” the country-music icon sings: "I put on my tight dress, hair piled on my head, painting my lips red and my eyes like Adele."

"I love her, love her, love her!" the 70-year-old singer told Digital Spy (a rep for Parton confirmed to TODAY that the Adele-inspired song appears on the album).

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

No problem, Dolly! In addition to working with Adele, Parton has even more potential collaborations in mind.

“I would like to do something with Justin Timberlake,” she revealed. “We are both Tennessee people. I love his work. Who knows, someday I might get a chance to do some of those things."

And luckily for Parton, Adele is no stranger to duets.

Just this week, she surprised her Los Angeles concertgoers by inviting a 24-year-old fan (and Grammy-nominated singer) named Jamie Grace onstage to sing with her.
