They celebrated MusiCares’ Person Of The Year

Parton has not performed at the Grammys since 2001, so this was a big deal! The stars of today got together to pay a heartfelt musical tribute to the musical rockstar.

Proceeds from the annual Person of the Year tribute-now in its 29th year-provide essential support for MusiCares, a charity founded by the Recording Academy that ensures music people have a place to turn in times of financial, medical and personal need.

Parton was then joined by her goddaughter Miley Cyrus to sing "Jolene" before Maren Morris came out to help the singers perform "After the Gold Rush".

Dolly Parton was named this year's MusicCares Person Of The Year, and on Friday night there was a whole tribute concert where a whole bevy of artists honored her with performances and speeches. Parton wrote the original song "Red Shoes" for the film, and brought it to the Grammys stage with assistance from country quartet Little Big Town.

As we warm up this weekend's Grammy awards host of stars from across the world of music have gathered to pay tribute to eight-item Grammy victor Dolly Parton.

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.

"We love you, Dolly", said Perry.
