Dolly Parton has pulled out of the race to be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame this year, saying: “I don’t feel that I have earned that right.”

The country music star, 76, featured on the annual shortlist, alongside acts including Eminem, Lionel Richie and Rage Against The Machine, when it was published in early February.
