Dolly Parton is removing herself from Rock and Roll Hall of Fame consideration, as she doesn't want to get in the way of another worthy artist.
On March 14, the country music legend said she didn't want "votes to be split," so she was bowing out of the nomination pool.
"Even though I am extremely flattered and grateful to be nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, I don't feel that I have earned that right. I really do not want votes to be split because of me, so I must respectfully bow out," she wrote in a message on Twitter. "I do hope that the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame will understand and be willing to consider me again – if I'm ever worthy."
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominees, which were announced last month, include some heavy hitters, such as Eminem, Lionel Richie, Pat Benatar, Devo, Eurythmics, Judas Priest, Rage Against the Machine, Dionne Warwick, A Tribe Called Quest, Beck, Duran Duran, Carly Simon and more.
In her message, Dolly did, though, hint that she's eyeing the idea of making a rock album, something she's always wanted to do.
"My husband is a total rock 'n' roll freak, and has always encouraged me to do one," she wrote.
Rock on, Dolly!
