Dolly Parton Pulls Out Of Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame Nomination

One of several more-than-qualified artists who are currently being considered for 2022 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Dolly Parton posted a statement on Monday asking to bow out.

Though the Country music superstar singer/songwriter wasn’t specific as to why she felt unqualified worthy, despite plenty of evidence to the contrary, Parton alluded to not making a straight rock & roll record.

“Even though I am extremely flattered 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 the votes split because of me, so I must respectfully bow out.” “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.”

One’s decision to “bow out” is not entirely up to a nominee as in past years, Axl Rose, John Lydon, and Todd Rundgren protested their inclusion, but ended up being voted in regardless.

Parton is nominated alongside several generations and styles of artists, including Eminem, Duran Duran, Lionel Richie, Beck, A Tribe Called Quest, Kate Bush, Judas Priest, and MC5. Final choices will be announced in May.
