Dolly Parton Honored by Katy Perry, Little Big Town at Grammys

BTS at Golden Disc Awards

A tribute was paid to Dolly Parton in honor of her newly awarded accolade during a gala event at the Los Angeles Convention Center. During the opening with Musgraves and Perry, Parton joined the duo to sing her hit, "Here You Come Again".

At the MusiCares gala, one of the most prestigious events held during Grammys weekend, Cyrus introduced Parton to the crowd, saying, "She's not just my fairy godmother, she's everyone's".

Dolly Parton became the first country singer to receive the MusiCares Person of the Year award on Friday, taking to the stage with jokes about hillbillies, fighting and pornography.

Eight-time Grammy victor Parton, the singer and songwriter behind the hits "9 to 5", "Jolene" and "I Will Always Love You", got the biggest laughs at the 29th annual gala for MusiCares, which helps members of the music industry in need.

Parton, whose career began with appearances at the age of 10 on radio stations in her native Tennessee, began her speech with a joke that made light of her backcountry roots. "We want to be like you when we grow up". "Love each other and keep your vows", she said, referencing the key elements that strengthened her decades-long relationship with the 76-year-old businessman.

"She's the most non-judgmental person I've ever [known] in the world", Cyrus told PEOPLE at the red carpet.

They then pretty much confirmed they were working on a Dolly tribute when they uploaded a picture together wearing matching Dolly Parton leather jackets. "You're not personally involved, but you still get off on it".

Parton is this year's MusiCares Person of the Year, an honor handed out by the Recording Academy as part of the Grammy week celebrations to celebrate a music legend's dedication to philanthropy and their careers.

While it was already announced that both Cyrus and Mendes would be performing at this year's GRAMMY Awards, the news of them collaborating for a performance lit up the internet.
