On Friday night, Parton was awarded with the MusiCares Person of the Year.
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". Jimi Westbrook even put on a Dolly Parton T-shirt for the occasion. Parton wrote the original song "Red Shoes" for the film, and brought it to the Grammys stage with assistance from country quartet Little Big Town. This was the country icon's first Grammys performance since 2001. It was a rare public appearance for Ronstadt, who can't sing anymore because of Parkinson's disease, which Parton mentioned.

Barr has said he will be as transparent as possible under Justice Department regulations and will make as much public as he can. The Republican president has repeatedly criticized the investigation as a "witch hunt" and denies any collusion with Moscow.
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.
"That's how this remarkable woman has been blazing her own trail year after year, decade after decade, and that's why we will always love her".
