Dolly Parton teamed up with an all-star band to perform her classic “Jolene” at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame ceremony on Saturday in Los Angeles. A number of Parton’s fellow inductees joined her including Eurythmics, Pat Benatar, Judas Priest’s Rob Halford, Duran Duran‘s Simon Le Bon and more.

Parton’s road to the Rock Hall wasn’t always certain. The iconic country artist initially turned down her nomination in February saying she didn’t believe she “earned that right” and didn’t want to split voters. “I really do not want votes to be split because of me, so I must respectfully bow out,” she wrote on socials in March.


Dolly later said she would “gracefully” accept the nomination. She was inducted along with Eminem, Duran Duran, Eurythmics, Lionel Richie, Carly Simon and Pat Benatar. Parton fittingly performed “Rockin’ Years” for her first performance and also noted she had a rock album on the way in light of her induction.

Dolly would close the ceremony, however, with her 1974 classic, “Jolene.” Along with a number of her fellow inductees, the performance also featured P!NK Brandi Carlile, Sheryl Crow, Zac Brown and more.
