Women in country music are not being given the radio airplay they deserve or need to keep their presence in the media. So Luke Bryan is taking a stand and starting to speak up about it. Bryan is even quoted in the article saying, “It’s definitely a conversation that we do always [have], and even going forward. We’re always making sure that we’re doing our, I guess, due diligence … and not missing out on a talented woman out there, a talented young lady that’s up and coming,” Read more here: https://bit.ly/2MFFqGK

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!
