Rock & Roll Hall of Fame announces its 2022 inductees
Cleveland, Ohio – The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame has officially rolled out its new slate of inductees, and Dolly Parton has made the cut!
Despite initially asking to have her name pulled from the running, it looks like Dolly will be joining a slew of notable music artists in the 2022 class of inductees for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
Joining the Jolene singer are Duran Duran, Pat Benatar, Eminem, Lionel Richie, Eurythmics and Carly Simon, who were all voted on by the Hall's thousand-plus voter base.
In addition to the seven musicians who were voted in are eight inductees that weren't in the competition, but rather hand-selected by the board for inclusion in other categories.
These inductees include Judas Priest, singers Harry Belafonte and Elizabeth Cotten, producers Terry Lewis and Jimmy Jam, as well as executives Jimmy Iovine, Sylvia Robinson, and Allen Grubman.
The 37th annual induction ceremony will take place at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles on November 5.
This is the first year in the Rock & Roll HOF's history that six women will be inducted, and we love to see it!
