Dolly Parton celebrated in all-star Grammys tribute

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. The stars of today got together to pay a heartfelt musical tribute to the musical rockstar.

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. Little Big Town performed "Red Shoes" with Dolly before all the stars ended the tribute with a rendition of "9 to 5".

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.

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. They sang the popular tune in 2016 on The Voice with Pentonix, as well as during the 25th-anniversary celebration of Dollywood.

Dolly herself shared her delight about the event, saying, "I am so excited and humbled to be honored as MusiCares Person of the Year". Dolly Parton's tribute concluded with everyone taking the stage again to sing "9-5". Miley looked incredible in a black-sequined minidress, attending with her parents, Billy Ray and Trish Cyrus.

She's in fine company: past MusiCares Person of the Year honorees include Tony Bennett, Bono, Natalie Cole, Phil Collins, David Crosby, Neil Diamond, Bob Dylan, Gloria Estefan, Fleetwood Mac, Aretha Franklin, Don Henley, Billy Joel, Elton John, Quincy Jones, Carole King, Paul McCartney, Luciano Pavarotti, Tom Petty, Bonnie Raitt, Lionel Richie, Paul Simon, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Barbra Streisand, James Taylor, Brian Wilson, Stevie Wonder, and Neil Young. She has had 41 Billboard top-10 country albums, the most for any artist, and 25 of her songs have topped the country music charts, tied with Reba McEntire for the most for a female musician.
