[ # ] Dolly Parton bows out of her Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nomination
March 14th, 2022 under Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton is nominated to be part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this year. According to the voting fans, it looks like she was going to make it in. I say was because today the beloved singer wrote a message to the museum.

Dolly here! 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, 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. 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!

Parton is worthy of being in there with all of the music she has created and the accomplishments she has achieved in her over 50-year career. I mean, she wrote Jolene and I Will Always Love You on the same day! She also came up with the music for 9 to 5 by playing it on her nails. I could go on. She deserves to be there along with this year’s other noms, Duran Duran, Eminem, Pat Benetar, and Eurythmics, who are looking like they will make it in.

But, that is Dolly for you. She doesn’t want the credit for being who she is. Because of that, she deserves all the accolades she turns down.

We should aspire to be like her, as should every Rock star who comes after her.

Oh, and by her dropping out, it looks like Judas Preist will be joining the Rock and Rock Hall of Fame. Unless the American Idol fans start voting for Lionel Richie like they are voting for the next American Idol.
