Last Friday, Dolly Parton was honored as the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year, the first country musician to be awarded the honor in its 29-year history.

Last night at the 61st Grammy Awards, the honors for Parton continued as her performance, along with more than a dozen top-recording artists, absolutely stole the show.

Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves kicked off the tribute with "Here You Come Again," only to be joined by Parton which brought the crowd to its feet, and then she was joined by her goddaughter Miley Cyrus for an incredible rendition of "Jolene,"  All that was followed by DFW native Maren Morris, who joined the two for an amazing cover of Neil Young's "After The Gold Rush."

Little Big Town came out next to perform a new song of Parton's "Red Shoes," and then EVERYBODY came back out to sing "9 to 5."

While the guests Sunday night were treated to an incredible performance, the crowd Friday night was treated to some of Parton's amazing sense of humor.  While making her acceptance speech, Parton joked, "All of my life I have been known for two things. Well, not them.  I've also been known as a singer and songwriter too.  Although I'm not complaining.  Ol' Pancho and Lefty's been pretty good to me.  Everybody always expects me to do a boob joke and I like to do that right up front."
