Dolly rocks!

Dolly Parton will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Nov. 5. She tried to back out of the nomination saying she wasn’t “rock,” hadn’t earned the right to be there and there were other rockers who deserved it more than she did. However, she was voted in anyway. While it’s not the reason she was nominated, her rendition of Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven,” is done in Dolly style. Parton joins Eminem, Duran Duran, Lionel Richie, Pat Benatar, Judas Priest, Carly Simon, Eurythmics and Jimmy Jam & Terry Lewis as part of the 2022 inductee class.
