Dolly Parton will perform on the Grammy Stage for the first time in 18 years! She will be performing her songs from the “Dumplin” soundtrack. She has co-written six new songs for the Netflix blockbuster, as well as re-recorded six songs from her iconic repertoire. This performance marks her return to the prestigious Grammy stage for the first time since 2001.
Parton has earned eight Grammys over her lengthy career, and she is also a Hall of Famer. She will also be honored as the MusiCares Person of the Year. MusiCares is the Charitable Arm of the Recording Academy. It provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need.
