Dolly Parton Will Be Honored With 2019 Grammy Awards Tribute Performance
Little Big Town, Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris and others will pay tribute to Dolly Parton during the 2019 Grammy Awards. The musical performance comes in honor of Parton's designation as 2019's MusiCares Person of the Year.
The musical tribute to Parton will feature Little Big Town, Musgraves and Morris, along with pop star Katy Perry, performing some of Parton's biggest hits. Parton herself will also take the stage, to perform some of the new music she wrote for the recent Netflix film Dumplin'; it will be her first time performing at the Grammys since 2001.
Parton is an eight-time Grammy Awards winner and is receiving the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year honor in recognition of her philanthropic efforts throughout her career, including her Dollywood Foundation, Imagination Library and 2016 telethon to raise money for the victims of wildfires in East Tennessee. She is the first country artist to earn the MusiCares Person of the Year honor in its 29-year history, and will be celebrated at the MusiCares Person of the Year gala on Friday (Feb. 8) as well.
The 2019 Grammy Awards will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Calif., on Feb. 10. The televised ceremony will begin at 8PM ET on CBS; the pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony will be available to stream online earlier in the evening. Further details, including additional performers, will be announced in the coming weeks.
