Miley Cyrus, Reese Witherspoon and More Honor Dolly Parton at MusiCares Gala

Musgraves and Perry both honored Parton at her MusiCares Person of The Year event as well.

Some of the biggest stars from across musical genres joined together to pay tribute to Dolly Parton at the 2019 Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, Calif., on Sunday night (Feb. 10).

It will be the first time we've seen these two icons team up to perform, and with their joint vocal and guitar ability, we're certain they're going to be doing Miley Cyrus's godmother, Dolly, more than proud!

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

"Of course, you know we hillbillies need MusiCares too", she told the audience.

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". She will join Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris and Little Big Town to perform Parton songs. "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.

In her acceptance speech, she said: "I have worked with so many wonderful men".

Parton, an eight-time Grammy victor, was serenaded by her goddaughter, Miley Cyrus, Little Big Town, Katy Perry, Maren Morris and Kacey Musgraves. "Watching them is sort of like watching porn", Parton joked. "You're not personally involved, but you still get off on it".

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

Her own charity work owes much to her admiration for her father, who labored in tobacco fields and construction sites and could not read.

The annual gala takes place before the Grammy Awards.
