The iconic Dolly Parton recently did an interview and was asked who she’d like to bake a cake with (based on her new Duncan Hines baking collection) and who she’d like to duet with, and her answer was…Keith Urban. The interview segment appeared all over social media.

Dolly said, ‘I love Keith Urban. I’ve always thought he was one of the most talented and cutest guys in the world. Not that, like I say, I’m not trying to hit on him. He’s got Nicole and who can beat that? She’s Jolene. But anyway, I love his writing and I just think he’s dear, and he reminds me so much of my brothers and my own family back home. He’s from Australia, but he has that feel of like our mountain, Southern people, and he’s fit right in. So, I’d be happy to bake a big ole cake for him and spend all afternoon singing songs.”
Keith had a video response he posted today (February 4th), and it kicked of with a piece of one of her songs, “Applejack.” He, along with a cameo of his wife Nicole Kidman, said they’d love to have cake and sing with Dolly. “Miss Dolly. I am so honored of the things you said. Thank you. I definitely will have a cake with you.” To which Nicole piped in, “I’ll bake a cake with you…but don’t take my man.” Keith laughed, adding “Nic’s gonna bake the cake. Thank you so much. We love you, Dolly…I would love to have cake with you. We all would, and I would love to do a song with you sometime. Let’s do that.”
This is a collaboration the entire world needs! Before we get a Dolly-Keith duet, you can hear him on the airwaves with his latest song, “Wild Hearts.” You can also see him at the Houston Rodeo March 1st and during his Las Vegas Residency, which continues March 25th.
