    Dolly Parton has pulled herself from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominations. She stated "I'm not worthy enough of this nomination."

    Any thoughts?

    I never considered Dolly a "rock and roll" performer, so not sure why she would have been nominated anyhow.

    However, in the article about her declining, she states that she's always wanted to do a "rock and roll" album and may shortly. But, Dolly doing rock and roll, well, I'm not going there!

    Dolly is not a rocker, although at times she did have a few of their tendencies.:D I like her.

    I wonder why (and by whom) she was nominated in the first place.

    And she said she was declining because she did not want to take votes away for those who truly deserved to be there. I guess that would kind suck if you think you caused someone more qualified to lose.

    Dolly seemed to be a fair kind hearted person from what I know of her ,she is.

    Agreed. She seems genuine and not a put-on.

    The funniest thing I have ever seen on TV was the interview that she did with Dan Rather. He said, "Dolly, there are rumors that you have had plastic surgery." She replied, "Yes, any time somethings sags, bags, or drags, I have it nipped, tucked, or sucked." The expression on his face was priceless. :D:D:D:D:D

    She's often quipped that they have supported her all these years.

    I've not been able to find out who chucked her name in the hat.
