Miley Cyrus and parents at MusiCares Person of the Year 2019

Dolly Parton with Miley Cyrus and Shawn Mendes

A tribute was paid to Dolly Parton in honor of her newly awarded accolade during a gala event at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Little Big Town appeared for new track "Red Shoes" from the Dumplin' soundtrack before Parton brought it home with a "9 to 5" finale.

She's the first country artist to be saluted in the tribute's 29-year history.

"I'm not getting into any of that", she said past year when David Wright of ABC's "Nightline" kept trying to get her to comment on today's politics. She thanked her "Aunt Dolly" after the performance.

Miley Cyrus took to the stage in an off-white suit with her godmother to perform "Jolene", Parton's 1973 hit that the two have dueted on in the past.

"Buddy, I had a ball", she said to more laughs.


In her acceptance speech, she said: "I have worked with so many wonderful men".

To gasps and laughs, Parton then described her feelings at seeing the likes of Willie Nelson, Katy Perry, Mavis Staples and Garth Brooks perform her songs at Friday's gala. For Parton, being apart from time to time does both parties good in the long run because this gives spouses something to look forward to when they reunite. "You're not personally involved, but you still get off on it".

Some of the biggest stars from across musical genres joined together to pay tribute to Dolly Parton at the 2019 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif., on Sunday night (Feb. 10).

Her own charity work owes much to her admiration for her father, who labored in tobacco fields and construction sites and could not read. The children's literacy organization has donated more than 100 million books to kids around the world since it was founded in 1995. One of only seven women to win the CMA Entertainer of the Year Award, Parton was also inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1999.

Video of Sunday's Parton tribute will be posted when it becomes available.
