Dolly Parton celebrated in all-star Grammys tribute

Dolly Parton performs with Linda Perry during a gala event honoring Dolly Parton as the Musi Cares person of the year in Los Angeles

Dolly Parton was recently named the MusiCares "Person Of The Year" by the Recording Academy, making her the first country artist ever to receive the honor.

"This could be the year for the real thing", Cyrus wrote, quoting lyrics from Parton's 1983 duet with Kenny Rogers, "Islands in the Stream", implying that she and Mendes may be recreating the iconic tune for the tribute.

Eight-time Grammy victor Parton, the singer and songwriter behind the hits "9 to 5", "Jolene" and "I Will Always Love You", got the biggest laughs at the 29th annual gala for MusiCares, which helps members of the music industry in need. This year, the academy hosted a party at the Los Angeles Convention Center to celebrate Parton's honor.

Parton has won eight Grammys out of 47 nominations during her career and the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

Parton, 73, also appeared to touch on some of the concerns of the #MeToo movement and sexual misconduct in entertainment and other industries, when she described entering the music business when it was a "man's world".

Musgraves and Perry began performing "Here You Come Again" Parton joined the duo on stage donning a lace white gown. "Love each other and keep your vows", she said, referencing the key elements that strengthened her decades-long relationship with the 76-year-old businessman. Katy Perry gave a heartfelt announcement after the song.

Parton has sold more than 100 million records and helped popularize country music outside the United States, often succeeding in crossing over into pop music.

Dolly herself shared her delight about the event, saying, "I am so excited and humbled to be honored as MusiCares Person of the Year".

Friday's gala raised 6.7 million USA dollars for MusiCares, Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow told the audience.

And of course, there will be a performance by the woman of the hour: the incredible Parton, who has been the star of Grammy week this year.
