Grammy weekend kicks off with honor for Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton

Many artists who have cited Parton as an inspiration, including Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris, Katy Perry, and more took to the stage to pay tribute to the beloved songwriter.

Parton, who has eight Grammys and 47 nominations to her credit, for her renowned singing and songwriting was honored with a special tribute during the 61st annual Grammy Awards on Sunday night.

Parton received the MusiCares Person of the Year award earlier this week.

She is the first country artist to be saluted in this way in the tribute's 29-year history. 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". Dolly Paton's Jolene is one of those songs, and at The Grammys today, she sang the hell outta that shit with her goddaughter, Miley Cyrus.

After Miley and Dolly performed together, nominee Maren Morris joined for one of the most lovely and harmonious versions of "After the Gold Rush".

For the finale, all of the performers came back to sing their hearts out to Parton's classic hit, "9 to 5".

Dolly Parton is one of the most loved icons in music, and Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and more superstars belted out her most famous songs in an epic Grammys tribute to the legend.

The two teamed up on the MusiCares stage accompanied by Mark Ronson for a duet of "Islands in the Stream", Parton's 1983 hit with Kenny Rogers.

Parton and Perry previously performed together during the 2016 Academy of Country Music Awards, and Perry and Musgraves collaborated for an episode of CMT Crossroads in 2014.

Little Big Town arrived last, with the quartet joining Parton to perform the song "Red Shoes" from the Dumplin' Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, which Parton curated.
