Dolly to Perform at GRAMMYS for the First Time Since 2001


The Recording Academy just released additions to the lineup for the 61st Annual GRAMMY Awards with a special tribute to eight-time GRAMMY winner and 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year Dolly Parton.

Making her return to the GRAMMY stage for the first time since 2001, Parton will perform new music from her hit album Dumplin’ (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack). Dolly’s special tribute segment will also feature her classic hits sung by Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves, and Katy Perry.

Parton is being recognized as the 2019 MusiCares Person of the Year for her considerable creative accomplishments and her longtime support of a number of causes through her Dollywood Foundation, including the Imagination Library, which, since 1996, has provided more than 100 million books to children from birth to 5 years of age in the United States, Canada, Australia, and the U.K.

Opening this week, The GRAMMY museum featured a new exhibit “Diamond in a Rhinestone World: The Costumes of Dolly Parton.”

This will be the first exhibit Parton has had in the United States outside of Dollywood. The exhibit opened on Feb. 4, where Parton discussed stories and the history behind these costumes at the Museum’s Clive Davis Theater as part of an exclusive Town Hall Program. The exhibit opens to the public on Feb. 5 and will run through March 17.

The 61st GRAMMYS will be hosted by Alicia Keys and will broadcast live on CBS, Sunday, Feb. 10 at 7 p.
