American country singer Dolly Parton revealed that she twice rejected the Presidential Medal of Freedom during the Donald Trump administration.

The artist said she did not accept the awards because her husband was ill and did not want to travel due to the pandemic.

Parton is not sure if she would accept the medal from President Joe Biden, as it could be seen as a political gesture.
