Dolly Parton celebrated in all-star Grammys Tribute

Grammy Awards: Dolly Parton honored, performs with Miley Cyrus, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry

Over a dozen of those artists united dolly Parton to perform at the Grammy Awards on Sunday. The performances were part of a tribute to the songwriting of Parton after the country music legend was renowned for her musical accomplishments and philanthropic work night. She’s the first country artist to be saluted from the tribute history. 

Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves kicked off the medley of Parton’s biggest hits by singing “Here You Come Again” until they had been joined by Parton wearing a sequined, white dress. 

Miley Cyrus and Dolly Parton perform onstage during the Annual Grammy Awards on February 10, 2019, in Los Angeles. Next up was a duet between Parton and Cyrus who sang her classic, “Jolene.” The music legend then opted to sing “Red Shoes” from her 2018 record, “Dumplin'” — she just so happened to be sporting a set of killer red stilettos.

In the end of the moving tribute, the artists joined Parton to sing her hit”9 to 5,” which was written for the 1980 film of the identical title that starred Parton, Jane Fonda, and Lily Tomlin. 

Cyrus teased the tribute in the days leading up to her performance with an Instagram post revealing her in matching leather jackets with Shawn Mendes emblazoned on the back. At the Friday night even where Parton was honored the singer had the crowd entertained with her comedy.

“All my life I have been known for 2 things. Well, not them,” the well-endowed Parton joked at a bawdy acceptance speech. “I have been called a singer and songwriter too. Although I’m not complaining. Ol’ Pancho and Lefty’s been fairly good to me. Everybody always expects me to perform a boob joke and that I love to do this right up front.” 

Surprising Parton with her award on Friday and earning a standing ovation were both Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt, who collaborated with Parton for two powerful “Trio” albums. It was a rare public appearance for Ronstadt, who cannot sing because of Parkinson’s disease, which Parton mentioned.
