She won statues for her work on "Here You Come Again" (1979), "9 to 5" (1982), Trio (1988), "After the Gold Rush" (2000), The Grass Is Blue (2001), "Shine" (2002), and a new version of "Jolene" (2017).

Musgraves and Perry began the tribute with Parton's "Here You Come Again", with the duo sporting teased hair and bright red outfits.

Amid a bevy of women whose careers she influenced, Dolly Parton demonstrated that she's still got a few more lessons to teach, whether investing her classic "Jolene" with mountain-soul heart-ache, bringing stripped-down poignancy to Neil Young's "After the Goldrush", or elevating her recent song "Red Shoes" to the gospel heavens.

Parton, an eight-time Grammy victor, gave a star-studded performance alongside Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town and Maren Morris as part of a tribute to the queen of country.

At the 61st Grammy Awards, one of the biggest highlights of the evening was the musical tribute by the best of the best sensations to the legendary performer and singer, Dolly Parton.

Cyrus set off a whirlwind of speculation that they were working together when she posted pics of herself on Instagram during Grammy rehearsals.

Six of the best new artist nominees are women, including H.E.R., Chloe x Halle, Margo Price, Dua Lipa, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith. As far as performers go, fans of Ariana Grande might be disappointed to learn that she dropped out of the ceremony.

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 is a true music icon, and the 2019 Grammys paid her due tribute with this star-studded segment.

Parton is one of the most successful country artists of all time.

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.
