  • Variety  REX Miley Cyrus and Shawn Mendes Musi Cares Person of the Year Gala Show Convention Center Los Angeles USA- 08 Feb 2019

The tribute started with Kacey and Katy, the first in big diva hair and the second in small, trading verses of Dolly's award-winning 1977 single "Here You Come Again" before Dolly herself joined the singers.

Dolly is also being recognised for her support of several charitable organisations, including the Imagination Library, which she founded in 1995 to support childhood literacy.

Pink performs during a gala event honoring Dolly Parton as the MusiCares Person of the Year, ahead of the Grammy Awards, in Los Angeles, California, U.S., February 8, 2019. Actually, this whole weekend has been an exciting thing for me ... She was also not shy about sharing her thoughts on how her looks are just as important as her talent.

Cyrus and Parton grew close when the famed "9 to 5" singer appeared on Cyrus former show, "Hannah Montana".

"I met her, and I was trying to not quote Steel Magnolias at her obnoxiously", Morris said of Parton's classic 1989 film.

Cyrus, who is Parton's goddaughter, and Mendes dueted on "Islands in the Stream" with Mark Ronson on guitar.

Parton said people ask her about it being a man's world when she got into the music business in the 1960s. What do you think about a 9-5 sequel? She captioned a photo of them on the red carpet at MusiCares with yet another lyric: "We rely on each other uh-huh". "You're not personally involved but you still get off on it". In that time, she's learned a lot from the famed music icon. "We may not have sex, drugs and rock 'n roll, but two out of three ain't bad".
