Dolly Parton is thinking about recording the ode she wrote to Glastonbury's muddy landscape after performing the tune when she headlined at this year's festival

Dolly Parton is in talks to record her ode to Glastonbury's mud.

The '9 to 5' hitmaker performed the one-off track at the world renowned music festival - famed for its muddy fields - at Worthy Farm, Somerset in June this year and has been hounded with requests to release it as a single ever since.

Organisers are even planning to make her ode a festival staple.

She told The Sun newspaper: "I'm getting such demand for the mud song that we're talking about recording it. There have been so many requests.

"There is talk about getting a different artist to perform it every year."

The 68-year-old singer - who made her Glastonbury debut on the Pyramid Stage at this year's festival - also revealed she was surprised people still find her "trendy and cool" after her performance spurred her latest album 'Blue Smoke' into the top three of the charts.

She said: "Whoever thought I'd end up all trendy and cool.

"It is great at my age as you never know if people are still going to like you."
