You can relax, rock purists . . . DOLLY PARTON has withdrawn her name from this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame consideration. She was one of seven first-time nominees, and as of last night she was fourth in overall voting.
But there was an immediate backlash from those who felt Dolly wasn’t a good fit. It sounds like she heard all the griping and didn’t want to get in the middle of it. Here’s what she posted yesterday on social media:
The Rock Hall has inducted several country artists, including Johnny Cash, Chet Atkins, Floyd Cramer, Bill Monroe, Hank Williams, Bob Wills . . . and the Father of Country Music, Jimmie Rodgers.
Don’t know about you, but Dolly is acting more like a rock star than many of those already enshrined! Long live Dolly!
