"Hey fans and friends, It's my Birthday so I'm going to give you a present! I'm releasing four never released songs for my birthday, to go with the Rockstar album, and a few others that you may have heard before that were not on the album," Parton wrote on Instagram. "I hope you enjoy them, and I hope you all have a happy birthday for me!"
