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.

Did you know back in Blake Shelton’s early days of recording with Giant Records, he was supposed to cut the song “I Wanna Talk About Me?” The label however agreed that this would not be the appropriate release for a lead-off single.
Instead, the song was given to Toby Keith who took it to the top of the Country Music charts, eventually peaking at #1 later that year. Shelton label however released the single “Austin,” which garnered him a #1 hit for 5 weeks and after Giant Records was dissolved, he was transferred to Warner Bros. Records.
Blake is now the reining CMA Male Vocalist of the year with 13 #1 hit singles and married to Country Music’s leading lady Miranda Lambert. It’s funny how things work out in the end. Do you think Blake could have done a better job that Toby? Leave us a comment!
Miranda Lambert turns 31 today. It’s amazing to see how far this Texas girl has come since her days on Nashville Star. Let’s take a look back at our favorite Country Girl’s most memorable performances.
