Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inducts Dolly Parton against her wishes


Recommended Posts

NY Post

The love for Dolly Parton is just too deep.

Even after the 76-year-old country queen took herself out of the running to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in March — “I don’t feel that I have earned that right,” she said in an Instagram post — voters thought she was more than “worthy” of a seat at the table of music immortals. After the rock hall didn’t accept Parton’s withdrawal — in part because voting was well underway — the “I Will Always Love You” singer ended up saying “I’ll accept gracefully” and will join such country legends as Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins and Hank Williams in the RRHOF when the 2022 induction ceremony goes down in November.

Also making this year’s eclectic class are Eminem, Lionel Richie, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, Carly Simon and New York native Pat Benatar. While the “Love Is a Battlefield” belter has been eligible for induction since 2004, she didn’t receive her first nomination until 2020, but justice was finally served this year for one of the biggest female rockers of the ’80s who epitomized the very essence of the genre.
