Dolly Parton took the stage Saturday night in Los Angeles at the 2022 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony (November 5). Sources claim that she started her speech with a joke: “I’m a rock star now!” She then talked about how grateful she was to receive the award.
She is said to have said, “This is an essential night for me.” “Many of you probably already knew that when they said they would put me in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I didn’t think I had done enough to deserve it.
I didn’t realize at the time that there was more to it than that. But I’m so honored and proud to be here tonight.”
In February, Parton was nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the first time. A month later, she turned down the nomination, which surprised her fans and Rock Hall voters.
The country singer-songwriter had been eligible for the Rock Hall for more than 30 years.
“Even though I’m honored and grateful to be nominated for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I don’t feel like I deserve it,” she said in a statement about her decision.
At the end of April, Parton changed her mind and decided to accept the nomination. She told NPR’s Morning Edition, “I’ll accept gracefully.” I’d just say thank you and take it because the fans voted for it.”
She joined Carly Simon, Eminem, Lionel Richie, and Eurhythmics in the hall of fame a few days later. This year’s honorees also include Pat Benatar and Duran Duran. Judas Priest and the production team of Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis were given Musical Excellence awards.
