Heart’s Nancy Wilson is giving props to Dolly Parton for taking herself out of the running for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame’s 2022 class of inductees.
The country music legend asked the Hall to withdraw her name from the 2022 ballot, saying “I don’t feel that I have earned the right. I really do not want votes to be split because of me, so I must respectfully bow out.”
Parton was one of 17 artists nominated for the Rock Hall class of 2022, along with Eminem, Lionel Richie, Rage Against the Machine, Judas Priest, Beck, and others.
Wilson, who was inducted into the Rock Hall with Heart said, “It’s really tough because Lionel Richie is in there. If you try to narrow it to what really is rock, it excludes too many others.
So I think she’s really a class act to have done that. It makes me wanna write a rock record with her.
I should give her a call. She can do anything. She’s written some of the best songs in our history. She can do it.”
