Rock and Roll Hall of Fame revealed its candidates in March and Parton didn’t think she deserved her nomination.

This implies that she did not want the votes to get taken away from the other contenders. “I must politely bow out,” the renowned country singer added.

Benatar, a mezzo-soprano with classical training, left her work in 1971 to pursue a singing career.
