Dolly Parton’s open confession as she withdraws her nomination for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame
Although it may have been the best gift of all, country diva Dolly Parton does not believe she is deserving of induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year.
To a surprised fan base, Parton said on social media, “I truly don’t want votes to be split because of me, so I must politely bow out.”
“I sincerely hope that the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame will understand and reconsider me if I am ever deserving.” This, on the other hand, has encouraged me to record a terrific rock ‘n’ roll album at some point in the future, something I’ve always wanted to accomplish! My hubby loves rock ‘n’ roll and has always urged me to do one.
“I wish everyone of the nominees the best of luck, and I appreciate the compliment once again.” “Keep it up!”
Parton was one of 17 nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame unveiled last month.
Also nominated were A Tribe Called Quest, Beck, Pat Benatar, Kate Bush, Devo, Duran Duran, Eminem, Eurythmics, Fela Kuti, Judas Priest, MC5, The New York Dolls, Rage Against the Machine, Lionel Richie, Carly Simon and Dionne Warwick.
