The 'I Will Always Love You' hitmaker has received 11 Grammy awards along with 50 nominations throughout her decades-long career. The singer was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1999. However, she felt a bit hesitant to join the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame after being nominated. "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," she said as reported by Today

However, despite Parton's objections, Rock Hall continued the voting process. "From its inception, rock 'n' roll has had deep roots in rhythm & blues and country music. It is not defined by any one genre, rather a sound that moves youth culture. Dolly Parton’s music impacted a generation of young fans and influenced countless artists that followed." said the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Foundation Director of Communications Shauna Wilson in response. Parton then gracefully accepted the nomination and called herself a "rockstar," in an interview according to LoudWire

Following her rockstar reference, Parton exclaimed, "I’m a rock star now!" as she accepted the Rock Hall's honor. "I want to thank the Hall of Fame and all the people out there through all of these years. I've been doing it all my life and I do love it. I'm very humbled by this," she continued as per UCR.

Earlier this year, the artist promised a rock album to her fans in hopes of being inducted. "I’m not expecting that I’ll get in. But if I do, I'll immediately, next year, have to put out a great rock 'n' roll album – which I've wanted to do for years, like a Linda Ronstadt or Heart kind of thing. So this may have been just a God-wink for me to go ahead and do that," she said.
