Country music queen Dolly Parton was honored by more than a dozen top recording artists with an epic performance at the 2019 Grammy Awards on Sunday, February 10. The medley of songs was part of a tribute to Dolly’s songwriting as the music legend, 73, was celebrated for her musical achievements and philanthropic work and named the Grammy’s charity MusiCares Person of the Year just two days earlier on Friday, February 8. Watch Dolly’s Grammys tribute performance in the video above!
Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves kicked off the set of performances of Dolly’s biggest hits by singing “Here You Come Again” before being joined onstage by the country singer herself. Dolly looked amazing in a silver and white sequined dress for the performance.
The crowd was thrilled when Dolly hit the stage and the audience’s screams and yells only got louder when the singer was joined by her goddaughter Miley Cyrus to sing “Jolene.” The duo then welcomed Maren Morris to the stage to perform “After the Gold Rush.”
The stage got a little tighter when Little Big Town joined the country songstresses to sing Dolly’s new song “Red Shoes.” The entire group of singers that made an appearance throughout the tribute then came back onstage to sing Dolly’s mega-hit “9 to 5.”
Just a few days ago, Dolly revealed in an interview that although she’s one of Hollywood’s biggest singers, she actually doesn’t consider herself to be a “star.”
“Well I still don’t know that I’m a star,” the blonde beauty said. “I say I’m a work horse that looks like a show horse because I don’t think of it in terms like that. I always wanted to just be really successful. I wanted to travel, wanted to wear pretty clothes. I wanted to have nice things, but I wanted people to hear my songs and have people hear me singing.” We love you, Dolly!
