After being honored as the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year on Friday, Dolly Parton took the stage at the Grammys to perform some of her country hits. The star-studded event included a brief on stage reunion when the beloved singer-songwriter-actress was joined by her former Trio partners, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. The eight time Grammy victor got an epic tribute from Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris and Little Big Town, who all sang covers from her massive catalogue of songs Dolly's written. Miley looked unbelievable in a black-sequined minidress, attending with her parents, Billy Ray and Trish Cyrus.

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".

Parton also performed a song from the soundtrack of Netflix's movie "Dumplin, '" "Red Shoes".
