Dolly Parton Honored by Katy Perry, Little Big Town at Grammys

Dolly Parton Honored by Katy Perry, Little Big Town at Grammys

Parton's medley brought the house to its feet, including K-pop group BTS, who were dancing as they sang along to Parton and Cyrus' performance of "Jolene". Grammys every year decides to award the Recording Academy's MusiCares Person of the Year to a legend and this year, it was Dolly Parton.

"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. Maren Morris joined the duo for a stripped down version of Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush", which Parton covered with Emmylou Harris and and Linda Ronstadt on their 1999 album "Trio II".

Miley Cyrus came out to support her godmother, country icon Dolly Parton, as Dolly was honored as the MusiCares Person of the Year Friday night at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

The 2020 Olympic medals will be made out of what?
The target for bronze was met last June, while the organisers had more than 90% of the gold and 85% of the silver by October. Just 30% of gold and silver medals were made out of recycled material at the 2016 Olympics in Rio, according to BBC .


Eight-time Grammy victor Parton, the singer and songwriter behind the hits "9 to 5", "Jolene" and "I Will Always Love You", got the biggest laughs at the 29th annual gala for MusiCares, which helps members of the music industry in need. Not when you're honoring somebody as legendary as Dolly Parton.

And when she had the stage - she completely rocked it, belting out, among other songs, her theme song from "9 to 5".

This was Dolly's first time on the GRAMMYs stage since 2001, and she opened up to ET before the show about being ready to slay!
