Dolly Parton Removes Herself for Consideration for 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame

Dolly Parton, who was nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame for the first time has announced she is removing herself from consideration. In a statement, Parton explained the reasoning why.

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,” Parton wrote in a statement on social media. “I really do not want votes to be split because of me, so I must respectfully bow out.

“I do hope that the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame will understand and be willing to consider me again — If I’m ever worthy,” she continued. “This has, however, inspired me to put out a hopefully great rock ‘n’ roll album at some point in the future, which I have always wanted to do! My husband is a total rock ‘n’ roll freak, and has always encouraged me to do one. I wish all of the nominees good luck and thank you again for the compliment. Rock on!”

The Hall Of Fame will announce which nominees will be inducted in May. The induction ceremony is planned for the fall.

  1. Her nomination didn’t make sense to me, anyway. As immensely talented as she is, she ain’t rock and roll.
