GRAMMYs 2019: Dolly Parton's Star-Studded Performance and Tribute

11 February 2019

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.

Others who joined in the celebration singing songs from Parton's extensive library included Don Henley and Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Norah Jones, Chris Stapleton ("9 to 5"), Mavis Staples, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, a duet featuring Miley Cyrus and Shawn Mendes ("Islands in the Stream") and a duet with Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves ("Here You Come Again"). Let us know in the comments (below)!

Next up was a duet between Parton and Cyrus who sang her 1984 song, "Jolene". Maren Morris joined the duo for a stripped down version of Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush", which Parton covered with Emmylou Harris and and Linda Ronstadt on their 1999 album "Trio II".

A clip of Miley Cyrus and Shawn Mendes rehearsing for their Dolly Parton tribute performance they've been teasing on Instagram has been posted onto Twitter and people can not wait to hear the full thing at the "Person Of The Year" Tribute Concert hosted by the Recording Academy ahead of the Grammy's.

"I met her, and I was trying to not quote Steel Magnolias at her obnoxiously", Morris said of Parton's classic 1989 film.

Many analysts expect governor Stephen Poloz to wait until much later in 2019 before making a move. The region also lost 700 full-time jobs and gained 400 part-time jobs month-over-month.

Parton was the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2011.

One of Parton's most admirable attributes is her longevity and this year she gained a special spotlight with the Netflix movie Dumplin' all about a Parton obsessed teen.
