Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Rock artists worldwide aspire to earn a spot in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It is already home to many legendary singers, guitarists, and drummers; you name it. Last year, Dolly Parton was given the recognition many of her fans agree she deserved. Even if she didn’t share the same sentiment, those in charge felt she should have a spot on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, among all the other artists who have made waves in society.
Dolly wasn’t so sure about this, seeing it as an honor she hadn’t earned. Parton felt there were other artists who deserved the spot more than she did, who had been in the running for longer. “I just didn’t feel like I had earned it,” she said to the presenters of The Host. “But they explained to me why I was in it and all that. So, I said, ‘Well, if you insist on giving it to me, I’ll take it.'” She added: “But if I’m gonna be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I’m gonna have to do something to earn it.”
Dolly Parton is not only a musician who inspires the hearts of many people, but she is also a humanitarian doing her part in improving the lives of the disadvantaged. Her philanthropic activities included the Dollywood foundation, which provides education and literacy programs for children and families in need.
