Dolly Parton remains the most iconic and multitalented artist of all time. It’s no wonder Parton is one of this year’s nominated performers for an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. We’re surprised she isn’t in there already!
It’s true that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has been notoriously unwelcoming to country singers over the years. But with Parton operating since the sixties, having success in every decade since – as a country singer, pop performer, film star, songwriter and entrepreneur, to name a few – it’s fair to say Parton has had a long-lasting impression on a generation of performers including well-known Rock & Rollers!
If there’s anything we do know about Parton – it’s not to underestimate her girlish giggle! Parton’s entrance into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame would be a glorious triumph for all that she represents! An advocate of loud-and-proud feminism, taking ownership of sexuality and using it for her own agency in a time where it was considered taboo; as well as key ally to the LGBTQ+ community that has inspired thousands of drag queens to embrace their femininity!
Streaming on Prime Video on March 7th, country fans can rejoice as Dolly Parton has confirmed she’ll be hosting the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards. The awards are to take place just three days after Parton’s latest album release Run, Rose, Run on March 4th.
