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. Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and more took on the timeless hits of Dolly Parton at the 61st annual Grammy Awards in a performance befitting the queen of country music.

There's more: After that memorable number, Maren Morris came out to sing "After the Goldrush" with Cyrus and Parton, followed by a star-studded rendition of "Red Shoes" with Little Big Town.

Parton closed the evening's performances.

The performance kicked off with Musgraves and Perry dressed in all red and belting out "Here You Come Again" from the Dumplin' soundtrack.

She is the first country artist to be saluted in this way in the tribute's 29-year history. Parton was being honored as the Recording Academy's 2019 Musicares Person of the Year.

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).

Parton, 73, also appeared to touch on some of the concerns of the #MeToo movement and sexual misconduct in entertainment and other industries, when she described entering the music business when it was a "man's world".

The news went viral and when Dolly and special guests performed 9-5 live on stage, it was clear that many people love the original movie and are ready for a sequel.

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.

They then pretty much confirmed they were working on a Dolly tribute when they uploaded a picture together wearing matching Dolly Parton leather jackets.
