At this year’s Grammy Awards, Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town, Miley Cyrus, and Maren Morris graced the stage with the one and only Dolly Parton for a tribute to Dolly Parton herself. Watch the performance here:

Starting it off is Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry with “Here You Come Again” while sporting similar looking red with gold accents outfits. After about a minute, Dolly herself joins them on stage and takes over the rest of the song, all while wearing an all white with red accents outfit and red high heels.

It wouldn’t be a Dolly tribute without “Jolene”! And we can’t have a performance of “Jolene” without Miley Cyrus, Dolly’s own goddaughter. Miley begins walking out to Dolly and then proceeds to start dancing with her tongue out, in true Miley fashion.

The next song performed was “After the Gold Rush” from her Feels Like Home album. Miley stayed on stage for this song. Maren Morris joined them on stage for this performance.

For her new song “Red Shoes” from her album titled Dumplin’, the soundtrack for the 2018 Netflix original movie, Little Big Town, or as Dolly called them Little Big Shots, joined in.

And just when you thought it was over, they couldn’t end it there. How can you have any sort of Dolly tribute anything without 9 to 5? Everyone else returns to the stage for this song, during which you saw the audience at times standing and grooving along with them.

What was your favorite part of the tribute? What is your favorite song from Dolly Parton? Talk to us in the comments!

Never has one dress received so much publicity in Country Music than Reba McEntire’s red dress she wore to the 1993 CMA Awards.

“I got more press off that dress than if I’d won Entertainer of the Year,” said Reba.

It’s remarkable that by today’s standards, this dress would hardly receive a second glance on the red carpet. But nonetheless, this iconic red gown now sits in the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Watch the unforgettable duet of “Does He Love You” with Linda Davis that turned heads at the CMAs back in 1993, and a hilarious interview with Ralph Emery where Reba dishes on what it was like to wear that legendary red dress.
