Dolly Parton - Dolly Parton delighted Adele wanted to write with her

Dolly Parton was ''so excited'' when Adele asked to write with her.

The '9 to 5' singer has heaped praise on the 'Skyfall' hitmaker and fueled speculation the pair could collaborate on a track after admitting she was ''honoured'' to have her as a fan.

She told The Sun on Sunday newspaper: ''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.''

The music icon also had kind words for fellow star Taylor Swift, who she insisted has ''handled herself'' well.

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.''

Meanwhile, Dolly praised Taylor's ex-boyfriend Harry Styles and the rest of One Direction, although she didn't know the boyband were ''all British''.

She admitted: ''They're fantastic but I didn't realise they were all British. I've heard all the music and they're great. They're good-looking kids.''
