The Rock and Hall of Fame got a lot of criticism over the years, with lots of people saying it’s not even Rock n’ Roll enough. Well, when the nominations came out for this year, it nominated legendary country singer, Dolly Parton. Well, Dolly herself responded during an interview with Billboard magazine… she says she’s floored and she seems very flattered by the nomination but it even confused her.
Dolly doesn’t consider herself “rock n’ roll”. She always considered herself as a strictly “country” artist and nothing more. Dolly’s been doing this since the late 60’s and she has like 50 studio albums in her discography pretty much. All of them country, although I’m sure some of her “country” music is kind of rock n’ roll a little bit.
Dolly says if she gets in, she’s planning to do a rock album like do rock music inspired by Linda Ronstadt and Heart kind of stuff which is kind of cool and would be a game changer.
Even Dolly is confused with the Hall of Fame like the rest of us.
Dolly Parton is one of the biggest names in country music and she seems like a very humble lady.
Yes, as long as she got the nomination, I think that’s an automatic induction, she’ll get in, I think. Even though it’s the wrong genre, lmao… but I do love Dolly, though. I have two albums by her: “Hello, I’m Dolly” and the “Jolene” album.
I respect her even more.
