The Recording Academy has expanded its 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.
Parton has been added to the performer lineup, marking her return to the Grammy stage for the first time since 2001. This year’s Grammy Awards will feature Parton performing music from the Dumplin’ original motion picture soundtrack. Additionally, there will be a tribute segment with Little Big Town, Maren Morris, Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry performing some of Parton’s classic songs.
Musgraves‘ Golden Hour earned an all-genre nod for Album of the Year, as well as for Best Country Album, while Musgraves is also nominated for Best Country Solo Performance for “Butterflies.” Her “Space Cowboy,” which Musgraves penned with Luke Laird and Shane McAnally, also earned a Best Country Song nomination.
Little Big Town is nominated for Best Country Duo/Group Performance (“When Someone Stops Loving You”). Morris is nominated for Record Of The Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“The Middle”), Best Country Solo Performance (“Mona Lisas And Mad Hatters”), and Best Country Duo/Group Performance and Best Country Song (“Dear Hate”).
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..
The 61st Annual Grammy Awards will air on CBS Television Network, Sunday, Feb. 10, 2019, at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
