Last month, Dolly Parton asked The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame to withdraw her name from the 2022 ballot, but it seems the she has changed her mind since.
In a new interview with NPR‘s “Morning Edition”, Dolly revealed that she has changed her mind, saying that she will “accept gracefully” if she is voted in.
“It was always my belief that the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame was for people in rock music,” Dolly said. “And so I felt like I was taking away from someone that maybe deserved it certainly more than me. I have found out lately it’s not necessarily that.
“But if they can’t go there to be recognized, where can they go? And so I felt like I was taking away from someone that maybe deserved it certainly more than me since I never considered myself a rock artist. But obviously, there’s more to it than that.”
