Parton was there for all of it, of course. The stars of today got together to pay a heartfelt musical tribute to the musical rockstar.

Parton's Dumplin' album, which was released in November in conjunction with the Netflix holiday film, features Parton performing brand new songs, as well as new versions of old classics like "Jolene", "Here I Am", and "Here You Come Again" featuring collaborators including Sia, Miranda Lambert and Mavis Staples.

Dolly Parton was joined by more than a dozen of the top-recording artists to perform at the Grammy Awards on Sunday night. During the opening with Musgraves and Perry, Parton joined the duo to sing her hit, "Here You Come Again".

A tribute was paid to Dolly Parton in honor of her newly awarded accolade during a gala event at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Miley looked fantastic in a black-sequined minidress, attending with her parents, Billy Ray and Trish Cyrus.

Dolly Parton was honored as the 2019 MusiCares® Person of the Year tribute concert on Friday, Feb. 8. Little Big Town performed "Red Shoes" with Dolly before all the stars ended the tribute with a rendition of "9 to 5". Most known for "Jolene", "Coat of Many Colors", and "9 to 5", she has won nine Grammys, three American Music Awards, 10 Country Music Association Awards, and seven Academy of Country Music Awards.

Numerous musicians who performed with Parton on Sunday night were also at Friday's 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.
