Dolly Parton is nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. However, last month, she said she would like to bow out from the nomination. The Rock and Roll of Fame responded by telling her it was too late to pull her nomination.

Today, when the singer was on NPR Morning Edition to promote her book, Rose, Run with James Patterson, the host asked her what she would do if she won. “Well, I’ll accept gracefully. I would just say thanks and I’ll accept it because the fans vote,” she said. “But when I said that, it was always my belief that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame was for the people in rock music, and I have found out lately that it’s not necessarily that. But if they can’t go there to be recognized, where do they go? So I just felt like I would be taking away from someone that maybe deserved it, certainly more than me, because I never considered myself a rock artist. But obviously, there’s more to it than that.”

Dionne Warwick, who is also nominated this year, feels the same way as Dolly. Warwick thinks that they should change the name of the Hall of Fame to something that is more inclusive for musicians who are not Rock and Rollers. I have to say that both ladies are right. So it will be interesting to see if the Hall of Fame will consider changing their name.

The winners, which better include Duran Duran, will be announced next month.
