The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio has been operating since 1983. The foundation awards membership based on musicians' achievements over the entire course of their careers, so they are usually inducted later in life. However, there has been a lot of controversy over there being a very low proportion of women inducted compared to men.

Dolly Parton learned that she was nominated to join the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year, but asked them to remove her from the running.  She explained her decision in a statement on social media: "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." Regardless, the beloved music legend was included in the vote and won a spot alongside other famous artists like Carly Simon, Eminem, Lionel Richie. 

Parton responded to the announcement on Twitter, saying "I am honored and humbled by the fact that I have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Of course I will accept it gracefully. Thanks to everyone that voted for me and to everyone at the @rockhall . I will continue to work hard and try to live up to the honor."
