Katy Perry (L) and Kacey Musgraves (R) perform during a gala event honoring Dolly Parton as the MusiCares Person of the Year, ahead of the Grammy Awards, in Los Angeles, California, U.S., February 8, 2019.
Parton is also that rare celebrity who's deliberately chosen not to express herself politically these days when she has the spotlight.
Dolly Parton, eight-time GRAMMY victor and 2019's MusiCares Person of the Year, hit the stage at Sunday's 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards to perform music from the 2018 Netflix film Dumplin' as well as a medley of her iconic hits.
Little Big Town appeared for new track "Red Shoes" from the Dumplin' soundtrack before Parton brought it home with a "9 to 5" finale. The performance was full of duets and tributes to the legendary country singer.
Parton, a native of Tennessee, won her first Grammy in 1978.
"Buddy, I had a ball", she said to more laughs.
