Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Says Dolly Parton Will Stay on 2022 Ballot

Recently Dolly Parton requested to be removed from the ballot for induction to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Recently, the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame responded indicating Parton will remain on the ballot.

Parton had asked to be removed because she had not had large body of work rooted in Rock music and did not want to split the ballot.

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame issued the following statement:

All of us in the music community have seen Dolly Parton’s thoughtful note expressing her feeling that she has not earned the right to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. In addition to her incredible talent as an artist, her humility is another reason Dolly is a beloved icon by millions of fans around the world.

From its inception, Rock & Roll has had deep roots in Rhythm & Blues and Country music. It is not defined by any one genre, rather a sound that moves youth culture. Dolly Parton’s music impacted a generation of young fans and influenced countless artists that followed. Her nomination to be considered for induction into to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame followed the same process as all other artists who have been considered.

Dolly’s nomination, along with the other 16 artists for the class of 2022, was sent out earlier this month to our 1,200 general ballot voters, the majority of whom are artists themselves, for consideration for induction at our ceremony

We are in awe of Dolly’s brilliant talent and pioneering spirit and are proud to have nominated her for induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

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