Dolly Parton brought down the house at Sunday night's Grammy Awards. After "Jolene", Morris joined the two on stage for "After the Goldrush", a song originally by Neil Young that Parton, Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt covered. The eight time Grammy victor got an epic tribute from Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Kacey Musgraves, Maren Morris and Little Big Town, who all sang covers from her massive catalogue of songs Dolly's written.

At the end of the moving tribute, the artists joined Parton to sing her hit "9 to 5", which was written for the 1980 film of the same name that starred Parton, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin.

Miley Cyrus, Dolly Parton's goddaughter, took the stage with Shawn Mendes to perform a cover of "Islands In The Stream". Dolly Parton's life, music, and legacy was honored by a large lineup of stars including P!nk, Norah Jones, Leon Bridges, Willie Nelson, Brandi Carlile, and Garth Brooks.

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 last performed at the Grammys in 2001 when she collaborated with Nickel Creek and Brad Paisley for a rendition of Billy Joel's "Travelin' Prayer". She has had 41 Billboard top-10 country albums, the most for any artist, and 25 of her songs have topped the country music charts, tied with Reba McEntire for the most for a female musician.

All of the singers came back out to perform Parton's mega-hit "9 to 5".

One of Parton's most admirable attributes is her longevity and this year she gained a special spotlight with the Netflix movie Dumplin' all about a Parton obsessed teen.
