For his next record, To All the Girls, Willie Nelson teamed up with an array of top female singers from Loretta Lynn and Mavis Staples to Miranda Lambert and Norah Jones – for 18 country duets; they will see release on September 24th. "It's been a good one!" Nelson tells Rolling Stone. Now you can take an exclusive first listen to Nelson's collaboration with Dolly Parton on "From Here to the Moon and Back." Parton initially wrote the cut for the soundtrack for her 2012 film Joyful Noise and on this simple, gorgeous version, her softly soaring vocals pair perfectly with Nelson's delicate croak amidst sighing strings and steel guitar.
