Miley Cyrus, Kacey Musgraves & More Bring Audience to Their Feet with Dolly Parton Grammys Tribute


They will always love Dolly Parton!

During Sunday night’s Grammy awards, Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris and Little Big Town all took the stage to honor the country superstar, 73, in a tribute performance.

To make things even more special, Parton’s goddaughter Miley Cyrus also joined the group to pay tribute to the eight-time Grammy winner. Cyrus previously performed a duet of “Islands in the Stream” with Shawn Mendes at Friday’s MusiCares gala.

Musgraves, 30, and Perry, 34, kicked off the tribute with Parton’s hit “Here You Come Again.”

Moments into the song, Parton herself took the stage to join Musgraves and Perry, standing out between the two scarlet-clad singers in her sheer, spangled white dress.

Next up, Cyrus, 26, performed her well-known cover of Parton’s smash “Jolene.” As she made her grand entrance, dressed in a gold suit, her proud dad Billy Ray Cyrus and sister Noah cheered on from their seats.

Cyrus and Parton took turns singing the iconic lyrics and encouraged the audience to sing along.

“Give it up for Dolly,” Cyrus yelled out.

Morris, 28, appeared next onstage, joining Cyrus and Parton to sing “After the Gold Rush.”

Parton then performed “Red Shoes Girl” with Little Big Town, a new song from the motion picture soundtrack to Netflix’s Dumplin‘, which tells the story of a small-town girl who turns to Parton’s music for inspiration.

Parton was then joined again by Perry, Cyrus, Musgraves, Morris and Little Big Town as they performed her hit “9 to 5.”

“Thank you, thank you everybody,” Parton said as the performance concluded.

The performance is the first time Parton has performed on the Grammy stage since 2001.
