Dolly Parton honored by Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry at Grammys

11 February 2019

Several of those ditties were honored during Sunday's tribute, in addition to performances of "After the Gold Rush", Parton's newest song "Red Shoes" and, of course, the iconic "9 to 5". The stars of today got together to pay a heartfelt musical tribute to the musical rockstar.

Katy and Kacey performed "Here You Come Again" before Dolly and goddaughter Miley hit the stage for "Jolene".

The Grammy awards will always love Dolly Parton.

After Miley and Dolly performed together, nominee Maren Morris joined for one of the most attractive and harmonious versions of "After the Gold Rush".

Parton, an eight-time Grammy victor, gave a star-studded performance alongside Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town and Maren Morris as part of a tribute to the queen of country.

The 73-year-old Tennessee native was recognized this year for her iconic career and charitable contributions, including her long-running Imagination Library.

"After all these years I'm still at, and people act like I'm still important", said Parton with her typical humility on the red carpet ahead of the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday night, this year held in Los Angeles. Parton asked to transition into her 1980 single "9 to 5", written for the comedy film of the same name starring Parton, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Dabney Coleman.

Dolly herself shared her delight about the event, saying, "I am so excited and humbled to be honored as MusiCares Person of the Year".

One of Parton's most admirable attributes is her longevity and this year she gained a special spotlight with the Netflix movie Dumplin' all about a Parton obsessed teen.

Parton and Perry previously performed together during the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards, and Perry and Musgraves collaborated for an episode of CMT Crossroads in 2014.
