Dolly Parton, Ronstadt, Harris Reunite at MusiCares

The stars of today got together to pay a heartfelt musical tribute to the musical rockstar.

In essence, Sunday night's performance was the MusiCares banquet in miniature with many artists reprising their performances from that night, most notably Musgraves and Perry on a duet of "Here You Come Again" in outfits that were vintage Dolly.

Dolly has eight Grammy Awards, two songs in the Grammy Hall Of Fame, "Jolene" and "I Will Always Love You", and received the Recording Academy's Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011. Maren Morris joined the duo for a stripped down version of Neil Young's "After the Gold Rush", which Parton covered with Emmylou Harris and and Linda Ronstadt on their 1999 album "Trio II".

Parton, an eight-time Grammy victor, gave a star-studded performance alongside Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Kacey Musgraves, Little Big Town and Maren Morris as part of a tribute to the queen of country.

Dolly Parton brought down the house at Sunday night's Grammy Awards. She thanked her "Aunt Dolly" after the performance.

All of the performers came on stage to perform "9 to 5" along with the entire crowd singing along.

Parton, 73, also appeared to touch on some of the concerns of the #MeToo movement and sexual misconduct in entertainment and other industries, when she described entering the music business when it was a "man's world". "Well, not them", Parton said in her Friday acceptance speech while receiving the MusiCares award.

Other confirmed acts for the big event are Cardi B, Shawn Mendes, Janelle Monae, Brandi Carlile, Diana Ross, Post Malone and Dan + Shay.
