Grammy weekend kicks off with honor for Dolly Parton

Dolly Parton and Miley Cyrus

Parton was there for all of it, of course.

During the all-star number, which was introduced by Anna Kendrick, the country titan appeared in between Perry and Musgraves for their cover of "Here You Come Again", before joining her goddaughter Cyrus for an appropriate cover of "Jolene".

Miley Hemsworth, née Cyrus, jumped on stage at the Grammys for a glorious tribute to Dolly Parton. The eight-time Grammy victor shared, "I just love what I do, I have a good attitude, and if I see something sagging, I get it nipped, tucked, and sucked". Rolling Stone has learned that she's set to perform re-recorded versions of her hits as well as music from the soundtrack of Jennifer Aniston's Netflix movie, "Dumplin'".

And like any top pop sensation, Miley Cyrus had a few wardrobe changes up her sleeves as she went from sparkling yellow suit to an eye-popping sheer ensemble.

Parton is a eight-time Grammy victor herself, and remains the most successful female country artist of all time with 44 of her albums making the Billboard Top-10 Country Album list.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA - FEBRUARY 10: (L-R) Katy Perry, Dolly Parton and Kacey Musgraves perform onstage during the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards at Staples Center on February 10, 2019 in Los Angeles, California. The performance absolutely brought down the house, and in a big surprise, Dolly herself joined in on every tune!

He called it "the first time in Grammy history where I actually am who I thought I was for a second, so I like that". Gaga told the crowd: "They said I was weird, that my look, that my choices, that my sound wouldn't work".

Dolly has eight Grammy Awards, two songs in the Grammy Hall Of Fame, "Jolene" and "I Will Always Love You", and received the Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011.

In honour of Dolly Parton and her less is never more attitude to style, we look back at her most iconic fashion moments.

Afterward, Little Big Town and Dolly Parton sang "Red Shoes", and all the artists came together and sang "9 to 5".

Parton was the first country artist to receive the honor. This, one year after he controversially stated that "women need to step up" to get Grammy consideration.

"I realize that's the backwards thing and what I have to truly do is sit down and sing my song and truly connect with it", he added. "At my age, you take anything you can get", she cracked.
