Next up was a duet between Parton and Cyrus who sang her 1984 song, "Jolene".

Dolly Parton was named this year's MusicCares Person Of The Year, and on Friday night there was a whole tribute concert where a whole bevy of artists honored her with performances and speeches. A tribute was paid to Dolly Parton in honor of her newly awarded accolade during a gala event at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

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. "We may not have sex, drugs and rock "n" roll, but two out of three ain't bad". Rolling Stone has learned that she's set to perform re-recorded versions of her hits as well as music from the soundtrack of Jennifer Aniston's Netflix movie, "Dumplin'".

Miley Cyrus, Dolly Parton's goddaughter, took the stage with Shawn Mendes to perform a cover of "Islands In The Stream". "Because I have actually worked with so many wonderful men and I've never met a man that I didn't like and I've never met a man whose ass I couldn't kick if he didn't treat me with the right respect".

"Watching them is sort of like watching porn", Parton said.

"You're not personally involved, but you still get off on it".

Last year alone, MusiCares provided more than $6.5 million dollars to approximately 8,600 members of the music industry-the largest number of clients served and dollars distributed in a single year in the charity's history.

Parton was the recipient of a Lifetime Achievement award from the Recording Academy in 2011.

Parton will be honored on Sunday with another tribute at the Grammy Awards, which will be broadcast live.
