Dolly Parton won’t be entering the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year – and the decision is her own.
The country music icon has decided to “respectfully bow out” of the process, according to a statement she posted to social media on Monday.
Dolly writes: “Even though I am extremely flattered and grateful to be nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I don’t feel that I have earned that right. I really do not want votes to be split because of me”.
Parton does, however, hope to make a “great rock ‘n’ roll album at some point in the future” and hopes the HOF will “be willing to consider me again”.
Do you agree with Dolly’s decision? Should the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame be limited to “rock” artists, or should anyone who made a mark in popular music be considered?
