The 76-year-old singer originally deemed herself unworthy of this induction and asked the organization to withdraw her name. However, she was grateful when the moment arrived and she said, "I’m a rock star now! Back when they said they were going to induct me into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I didn’t really think that I’d done enough to deserve that. I didn’t understand it at the time. But this is a very special night for me. I’m sure a lot of you knew that back when they said they were gonna put me in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I didn’t feel like I had done enough to deserve that. And I didn’t understand at the time that it’s about more than that. But I’m just so honored and so proud to be here tonight."

She went as far as to confirm that her next album will be based strictly on rock music as opposed to her country roots. Parton even debuted her first song 'Rockin'. She continued, "My husband is a huge rock fan and he’s always said ‘you should do it'. But if I’m gonna be in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, I’m gonna have to earn it." Parton performed 'Jolene' with Pink, Brandi Carlile, and fellow inductees Pat Benatar, Simon LeBon of Duran Duran, Rob Halford of Judas Priest, and Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart.
