Dolly Parton Honored by Katy Perry, Little Big Town at Grammys

Dolly Parton Honored by Katy Perry, Little Big Town at Grammys

Dolly Parton has been married to Carl Thomas Dean for 52 years, and she's so proud of the milestone that she's sharing her secret to keeping their marriage intact through the years.

Shawn Mendes and Miley Cyrus's rehearsal for their Dolly Parton tribute performance has been posted online and has got us seriously excited for their performance together.

Little Big Town will serve as the official hosts of the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year Tribute set to honor country icon Dolly Parton.

The country singer added that Parton is "a total pro", playfully noting: "She and I are the same height!" She thanked her "Aunt Dolly" after the performance. "No one I think deserves to be honored tonight more than Dolly, not just because of her talent, but because of every bit of giving that she does and that's what MusiCares is about".

"Buddy, I had a ball", she said to more laughs.


"Watching them is sort of like watching porn", Parton said.

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. "You're not personally involved, but you still get off on it". It's even more special knowing the gala benefits music people in need.

The star-studded fundraiser for MusiCares, the signature health and human services charity founded by the Recording Academy™, takes place each year ahead of the Grammy Awards and is one of the most highly anticipated concert events surrounding the celebratory week and weekend.

Parton will be honored on Sunday with another tribute at the Grammy Awards, which will be broadcast live.
