Although Dolly Parton originally attempted to step back from her Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nomination, she explained to NPR in April that she would now be willing to accept the honor. That’s due to the fact that she’s come to understand that, if she were to get into the Hall of Fame, it would be what music fans want. “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,” Parton explained on “Morning Edition” when it came to her initial reasoning. At the same time, she acknowledged, “But obviously, there’s more to it than that.”

“I love her. She realized that she had not been graceful and sought to rectify it,” one fan tweeted in response to Parton’s change of heart. “An wealthy older woman looked at her own actions, rethought them, and changed her attitude about something. That’s a bigger deal than people realize. She’s above most other humans.”

When it comes to Parton’s competition for the honor now that she’s staying in the running, other 2022 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominees include Lionel Richie, Eminem, Dionne Warwick, Beck, Devo, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, Pat Benatar, Kate Bush, and Carly Simon. They’re joined by other notable names and accomplished acts like Judas Priest, Rage Against the Machine, New York Dolls, Fela Kuti, MC5, and A Tribe Called Quest.
