Dolly Parton to inducted into Rock & Roll Hall of Fame


Dolly Parton has been elected and has accepted her induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

The country singer felt that she didn’t deserve the honor to be a nominee for induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and on March 14 she bowed out of the running so another deserving act could be inducted. In a post on social media she stated “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,” Parton posted on social media. “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.”

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame responded to her request days later confirming that Parton would be staying on the ballot.

Her acceptance today is not surprising, last month it already seemed she had changed her mind and would accept the Rock Hall’s induction.

Earlier today she posted this on her social media. “I am honored and humbled by the fact that I have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame,” Parton wrote. “Of course I will accept it gracefully. Thanks to everyone that voted for me and to everyone at the @rockhall. I will continue to work hard and try to live up to the honor.”

The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction ceremony will take place on Saturday, November 5th atthe Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles.

The ceremony will air at a later date on HBO and HBO Max. There will also be a radio simulcast on Sirius XM’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Radio channel 310 and SiriusXM’s Volume channel 106.

Tickets for the ceremony will be up for sale at a later date, but select Rock Hall donors and members get exclusive induction ticket opportunities. You can donate or join by June 30 to be eligible.
