Dolly Welcomed to Gospel Hall

Dolly Parton was inducted as one of the new members of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame at a ceremony in Nashville, Monday, Feb. 2.

Dolly entered the Hall along with Christian artist Michael W. Smith, gospel star Dr. Bobby Jones, producer Lari Goss and gospel quartet the Dixie Hummingbirds. “When they told me they wanted to put me in the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, I said I wasn’t really a gospel singer, and that other people may deserve it more than me,” Dolly told Nashville’s daily newspaper The Tennessean. “I’m going to be doing a gospel album of my own, so I told them that maybe they’d want to wait till I did that. But they said, ‘No, let’s do this now and next time you can just get up and sing.’”
