“Each diverse group of recruits has had a profound impact on the sound of youth culture and helped change the course of rock ‘n’ roll,” John Sykes, Chairman of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, said in a statement. “Their music has moved generations and influenced many of the artists who followed it.”

Parton brought more attention to this year’s operation in March after she released a statement on social media saying “I really don’t want votes to be split because of me, so I must bow respectfully.”

The country legend later said she did it Be prepared to accept if selected for inductionNoting that she initially thought the honor “was for rockers.” (The Hall of Fame has drawn many artists from genres other than rock over the years.)
