Dolly Parton clarifies why she initially turned down Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nomination

Dolly Parton says she meant no disrespect by initially turning down her nomination for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

“I feel honored that all the people that voted for me did.

“I found out later that it’s far more than that, obviously. … I’m very honored and humbled by (the induction), and so I’ll try to live up to it.”

Then, on May 4, the Hall of Fame announced its 2022 roster of inductees, which included Parton

I will continue to work hard and try to live up to the honor. Love, Dolly.”

Now that she is officially being inducted, the Queen of Country hinted that a rock album could be on the way.

Parton, 76, joins Pat Benatar, Duran Duran, Eminem, Eurythmics, Lionel Richie and Carly Simon in the class of performers set to be inducted on Nov.

“I’m going to sing the hardest style rock ‘n’ roll song I could ever muster up just to show that I can do it,” she said.
