“Name the time and place @DollyParton…we’ll be there ,” Urban captioned the clip, which he shared on Friday morning (Feb. 4).
The video, shared by Urban, features a clip of Parton’s Good Morning America interview, where she revealed that she’d love to work with “good-lookin'” country star Keith Urban after the outlet asked her, “If you could bake a cake and sing a duet with any artist, who would it be and why?”
She quickly replied, saying, “oh my goodness, that’s a really good question. Any of the good lookin’ ones. I love Keith Urban. I’ve always thought that he was one of the most talented and cutest guys in the world — I’m not trying to hit on him, because he’s got Nicole [Kidman] and who could beat that, she’s Jolene.”
“I love his writing and I just think he’s dear. He reminds me so much of my brothers and my own family from back home. He’s from Australia, but he has that feel of our mountain southern people — he’d fit right in,” she continued to gush of the hitmaker. “I’d be happy to make a big ole cake for him and spend all afternoon singing songs.”
She added that the Australian singer knows her music well and would sing her songs while he was back home with his friends.
“We love the same stuff. We could let Nicole sit over and listen to us sing. I’ll fix [the cake] and she can serve it and have a piece.”
After the clip from Parton’s interview with Good Morning America played, Urban appeared strumming his guitar while covering a snippet of Parton’s “Applejack,” a track from her eighteenth solo studio album, New Harvest… First Gathering.
Following his brief performance, he said, “Ms. Dolly, I am so honored of the things you said. Thank you, I definitely will have a cake with you,” Urban said in the clip, before his wife Nicole Kidman chimed in from beside Urban and jokingly said “I’ll bake the cake with you, but don’t take my man.”
“Nic’s going to bake the cake,” Urban added.
Urban then thanked Parton for her kindness and said he and his wife would “love to” share a slice of cake with her, before admitting, “I would love to do a song with you sometime. Let’s do that!”
“Love you,” Urban concluded the clip while tapping his chest.

The Good Morning America interview with Parton comes in support of her recent partnership with Duncan Hines, who she partnered with to create her own line of cakes and frosting mixes inspired by her Tennessee roots.
Her partnership consists of two cake mixes, including Southern Style Coconut and Southern Style Banana, as well as two flavors of creamy buttercream frosting.
Before they even hit the store shelves, the limited-edition kits and cake mixes sold out online, however the cake mixes and frosting in vibrant pink packaging will be sold for about $2 in grocery stores and mass retailers beginning in March, but those interested in the full southern-style kit can still be added to the email list to be notified when it is back in stock.
