Dolly Parton says she’s not rock and roll enough for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
The 76-year-old posted on social media that while she’s flattered and grateful for the nomination but says she doesn’t think she’s earned it, and doesn’t want to take votes away from other nominees, so she’s respectfully bowing out.
Parton says she hopes to be considered again if she’s ever worthy, and the nomination has actually inspired her to put out a rock album.
Among the other first-time nominees; Eminem, Lionel Richie, and Duran Duran.
