The Jolene hitmaker was part of a nominee class that included several A-listed artists like Duran Duran, Eminem, Beck, A Tribe Called Quest, and Lionel Richie. The singer is a bit uncertain whether she will attend her induction ceremony that is set for November in Los Angeles.
The songstress, however, teased that if she attended, she was going to sing the hardest style of rock ‘n roll song that she could ever muster up just to show that she could do it. Parton has earlier admitted that she always wanted to do a great rock album while talking about the influence of Mick Jagger and his band, The Rolling Stones.
