Dolly Parton recently asked the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame remove her from his year’s ballot, insisting she felt she hadn’t “ earned that right” to be considered. Well, the Hall disagrees. The Hall of Fame just released a statement insisting she will remain on this year’s ballot. In the statement the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame” calls Dolly, an “incredible talent,” adding, “her humility is another reason Dolly is a beloved icon by millions of fans around the world.” The Hall insists, “From its inception, Rock and 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,” noting, “Dolly Parton’s music impacted a generation of young fans and influenced countless artists that followed.” They note, “Her nomination to be considered for induction into to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame followed the same process as all other artists who have been considered.” Besides, they say voting has already started on this year’s nominees. They share, “We are in awe of Dolly’s brilliant talent and pioneering spirit and are proud to have nominated her for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.” Meanwhile, during an appearance on Fox & Friends," Dolly explained why she took her name out of the running .“Well, I didn’t feel exactly right about that,” she said. “Because my perception, and I think the perception of most of America — I just feel like that’s more for the people in rock music. I’ve been educated since then, saying that it’s more than that, but I still didn’t feel right about it." She added, "It kind of would be like putting AC/DC in the Country Music Hall of Fame. That just felt a little out of place for me.”

Maren Morris is heading out on her “Humble Quest” tour in June, and she is definitely looking forward to the trek. “I’m really excited about this tour because we haven’t seen the fans in two years from the pandemic,” she shares. “So we are ready to get back out there and see everybody.” Maren says putting the set list together for the trek is “really fun,” especially since there will be songs from her new album “Humble Quest,” and she’ll be “peppering in some old favorite.” Plus, she plans on “throwing in some unexpected covers and creating moments that fans haven’t seen if you’ve seen me live,” noting, “we want it to feel really fresh and brand new.” And after not being on tour in so long she says, “we’re coming back with such an appreciation for it that we didn’t have quite the same way before,” adding, “It’s like we will never take for granted again being able to see live music.” The “Humble Quest” tour kicks off June 9th in Raleigh, North Carolina. Click here for a complete list of dates.
