Los Angeles: Country singer Dolly Parton says she was "so excited" and "honoured" when Adele expressed desire to collaborate with her for a song.

Parton has appreciated the ‘Skyfall’ hitmaker and fuelled speculation the duo could join hands, reports contactmusic.com.

"I was so excited a year or so ago because I was hearing she was coming to Nashville and wanted to write with me. I was honoured to find out she`s a fan because I think she`s spectacular," Parton was quoted by The Sun as saying.

She also had kind words for fellow star Taylor Swift.

She said: "I know her and her family. She`s a great girl and a big talent. I admire her a lot for how she`s handled herself."
