It was another movie soundtrack song that brought the tribute to a rousing close, however, when all of the performers from the segment returned to the stage alongside Parton to knock out her 1980 Oscar-nominated hit "9 to 5".

Miley Cyrus then arrived onstage with her signature low-voiced growl to deliver a rousing performance of "Jolene" alongside Parton, who is also her godmother.

Dolly Parton has been married to Carl Thomas Dean for 52 years, and she's so proud of the milestone that she's sharing her secret to keeping their marriage intact through the years.

Parton, a native of Tennessee, won her first Grammy in 1978.

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".

"Buddy, I had a ball", she said to more laughs.

On Friday night, Parton was awarded with the MusiCares Person of the Year. For Parton, being apart from time to time does both parties good in the long run because this gives spouses something to look forward to when they reunite. 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.
