Judas Priest: Rob Halford performs with Dolly Parton at Rock Hall induction jam

Judas Priest singer Rob Halford joined an all-star lineup to perform with Dolly Parton at the 2022 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction ceremony in Los Angeles on November 5.

As Rolling Stone notes, Parton led the evening’s all-star jam finale on her 1973 classic, “Jolene” – supported by the Zac Brown Band – alongside fellow new inductees Halford, Pat Benatar & Neil Gerlado, the Eurythmics’ Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart and Duran Duran’s Simon LeBon, as well as Brandi Carlile, and Pink, who inducted the country music icon.

Parton’s legendary career began when she started performing as child in her native Tennessee, which led to appearances on local radio and television; at age 11, she co-wrote and released her first single, “Puppy Love”, in 1959. After high school, Parton moved to Nashville, where she gained attention as a songwriter before securing a record deal and issuing her debut album in 1967.

Decades of country and pop music success followed, with Parton going on to sell more than 100 million records worldwide.

Halford and Judas Priest entered the Rock Hall on their third nomination, following similar recognition in 2018 and in 2020.
